The 4th

Jamie is just trying to buy some lighter fluid for a 4th of July cookout. Actually, he bought the lighter fluid already, it's just that he left it at the store, and he already walked the whole way back. His roommate's out of town, so he could probably just borrow his bike, but that bike also means everything to him and Jamie is already behind on rent. It’s too bad a chance encounter on the way fuels a chain reaction of terrible luck and frustrating situations that threaten to spin his life out of control.

    You either find this funny or you don't. I, on the other hand, was crying from laughing so much. 😂💯

  • ★★★½ review by tony Yohonson on Letterboxd

    I laughed practically the entire time. A real comedy of errors, writer/director/editor/star Andre Hyland piles on the misfortunes and jokes, leaving little room for hardly any emotional gravity. But who cares? It's a 'day in the life' hangout comedy that leans into hipster territory but ultimately saves itself by being dependable for good punchlines and - despite our very brief time spent with them - characters we somehow get to know and feel a sort of connection with, even if we aren't sure what it means.

    Looking forward to more from Andre.

    Situeaciones rocambolescas y frescas

  • ★★★½ review by ∆LX on Letterboxd

    Este tipo de premisas suelen atraerme bastante ya que no hay momento para relajarse ante la imparable cadena de sucesos negativos, ya sean por causas propias o por causas ajenas, que caen sobre el protagonista. El filme de Andre Hyland consigue transmitir muy bien la frustración que él mismo está sintiendo —es director, escritor, productor y protagonista—, pero a la vez no puedes dejar de reír ante lo bizarro o absurdo tanto de las desdichas que sufre como de los personajes por los que las sufre, aunque realmente él sea el que está tomando constantemente malas decisiones debido parcialmente a una irresponsabilidad típica de la juventud actual. No obstante, The 4th ya merece la pena solo por los temazos de música turca setentera/ochentera que suenan mientras Hyland vaga por LA.

    Una especie de clerks en los angeles en el dia movido que sufre un joven al ir a buscar carbón para la bbq. Muchos personajes estramboticos y diálogos rápidos y ágiles.
