stylish and great story
★★★½ review by John Brodie John Brodie on Letterboxd
I really liked the art design in this film, bright and colorful but never in a way that distracts from the urban setting. I also like how this story doesn't really have a plot but is just a bunch of endearing characters just trying their best to survive in this world. Though, the lack of plot does become an issue towards the end and whatever message the filmmaker was trying make gets lost in the process.
★★★½ review by TY Chang on Letterboxd
Feel like this isn't a particular worth-telling story yet it still pulls off smoothly and I hardly notice the time lapsed by.
Watched this for Bubble, long time no see man, don't even know he's only 48 by NOW.
And for reasons unknown I could still run Netflix.

★★★½ review by Peter Valerio on Letterboxd
Fresh out of prison, Ashley is trying to win back his old girlfriend. Along the way, he makes some friends, tries to make some money, and goes back to school. Pretty good indie character study. Humor is used to dress up what is, at its heart, a pretty sad story.
