Joe Swanberg United States, 2011

dave gunn's rating of the film The Zone

Swanberg uses and abuses the meta trope as his own personal therapy in this and I can't decide if it was an audacious display of self-reflection or another masturbatory display of vanity. The film ends with him and his wife summing up very honestly what this film truly is, and again, I am unsure whether he's laughing at us for watching it or making art out of inward critique.
