Not your typical high school movie and that's a good thing!
19 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

I wasn't familiar with Dash Shaw's work before I saw this movie, he was a comic book artist or graphic novelist, I'm not quite sure. His unique visual style propelled the story and characters to new heights, complementing each together very well to provide a wholly different kind of viewing experience.

The basic story has our main character Dash (Jason Schwartzman) try and save is school from sinking into the sea after he found out that it wasn't up to code. An oversight by the principal causes the school to fall apart and becomes a fight for survival full of quips and a sincere look at the lives of teenagers in general.

A great voice lead by Jason Schwartzman, Lena Dunham, Reggie Watts, Maya Rudolph, and a hilarious Susan Sarandon as Lunch Lady Lorraine.

My only issue was sometimes the animation got out of control; what I mean is that it became hard to follow and sort of jarring to watch towards the end.

The combination of great voice acting, a well written script, and a unique animation style make this a must see!

My suggestion: Check it out, watch it for the visuals and for a movie that will make you laugh throughout it's entirety.

Seen at TIFF 2016.
