Craig Johnson United States, 2017

Renton47's rating of the film Wilson

I like Johnson as a filmmaker and suspect he is gonna succeed with his mid-level indies. But Wilson seems to arrive with a bit of baggage that it can't separate from. I could be wrong, but here we get three distinct Sundance templates in one film, a few interesting in their right but messily assembled. The middle section is most conventional, while the bookends upend it in interesting enough ways.
