    I get the comparisons to Ben Wheatly, Guy Ritchie and Quentin Tarantino but besides all those obvious influences Us and Them has style and substance all on it's own. Such a unique home invasion film that relies more on dark comedy rather than thrills.

    Joseph Martin is a director to look out for. He's got a nice energy to his filmmaking without coming across as too flashy. The loose structure and time jumps help the film reveal it's clues piece by piece. The commentary on the rich vs. poor has been done so many times but it's just as relevant as it's ever been so I can't criticize that. Overall I really enjoyed this, I think it benefits from being so short and to the point.

    Really didn’t think I’d like this but I was into it. Very fun movie—not really Tarantino imo, and I mean that in a good way.

    SAW IT AT SXSW

    It has a great punk rock soundtrack. It about a group of kids that held a rich family hostage; while trying to find stuff to steal from them. This film is perfect for the times we live in which the middle class feels like there situation is getting worse; while the upper class is getting richer. It shows the frustration people have about their situation.
