I can't believe this exists and I'm so happy it does.
The singularity is approaching, y'all.

I'm not sure this movie needed to be made, but I am glad it was, although, honestly, the novelization is better.

The sequel to Joe Swanberg and Kent Osbornes' experimental 2011 film takes an unexpected turn into dark humor surrealism. The first 8 minutes of this film are credited to Swanberg as director, but Todd Rohal takes over from that point forward.
No one can argue that Osborne and Rohal played it safe. The existential concerns of "Uncle Kent" are still present, but they morph into surprising twists. Many of the talented actors from the world of Independent Film are present. Steve Little and Lyndsay Hailey really stand out. Even 'Weird Al' Yankovic pops up!
"Uncle Kent 2" may not be what is expected, but this is entertaining -- most importantly, it is creative and innovative.
