Brian Jordan Alvarez,
The first time I saw this movie, I had to watch it a few more times in only a matter of hours, showing it, recommending it, to everyone I knew that was desperate and famished and requiring an uplifting and overwhelmingly hilarious film. Though the plot pays homage to the stylistic cliches of several Christmas movies or coming-of-age adventure films it is anything but ordinary: it is a masterpiece of dada, of absurdity, so pure, heartfelt, and evocative contained to a mere hour and twenty minutes. The screenwriting is perhaps the best feature of the film - each line is witty yet natural, and the chemistry between the characters enables the conversations to involve the viewer. Sprinkled with 80's hits yet set in the future, the film combines, rather than juxtaposes, a range of western culture in a humorous way. It's a work of art. It's a work of art so hilarious and beautiful and I have to say, it has changed my life profoundly.
