Not for everyone, and that's what makes it great.
26 December 2016 | by bznerdSee all my reviews

Someone else posted something about "fake reviews" so I felt the need to write one.

I just saw this movie last night, and it is fantastic.

It's not fast paced, there's no hero or villain, it's a nerdy romance, teen angst, wallflower story all wrapped up into one little package.

There's no happy ending, there's no great triumph, there's only life and the things that happen in it. There's confusion, mistakes, and great adventures in between.

I feel like these pieces of cinema rarely get a fair chance, because they're either too real for a mainstream audience or people can't relate.

Freaks and Geeks / Undeclared were both victims of this, as they portray real life emotions in a light that isn't too easy to take lightly.

Slash is very akin to these "reject triumph" stories, minus the quirky sitcom jokes.

Don't watch this expecting some great story arch, some great soundtrack, or anything of that nature.

It's real, and it speaks to the outcasts. It speaks to those who realize that the world is not a happy place, and there are mistakes that you cannot take back. Having said that; there's also truth and the self manifestation of happiness.

This is a story about acceptance, where we get a small glimpse into these people's lives and that's it. A glimpse. Life keeps going for the characters, just as it does for all of us, just the same as it always does.

5-10 years from now; I'd love to see a sequel depicting where our broken heroes ended up in this word
