  • ★★★★ review by Matty Stanfield on Letterboxd

    Andrew T. Betzer's feature length cinematic debut is an intriguing and challenging film. After an accidental tragedy, their mother sends them away with a little money and a car.

    The film defies genre and is largely experimental in narration and editing. Betzer offers more questions than answers. There is no sentiment here or comedy.

    The film reminds me a bit of early work from Harmony Korine, but without the intention of shock or mock.

    This is a powerful film that seems stands alone and is constantly threatening to slip and fall into unforgiving waters. Potent stuff.

  • ★★★½ review by Peter Valerio on Letterboxd

    Two brothers are on the run after one kills a girl. They meet people. Weird things happen... sort of. Each encounter is engaging, but the film as a whole doesn't completely come together.

  • ★★★½ review by Nicklas Barback on Letterboxd

    Strange and original road movie about fathers and sons, violence and history. Fascinating characters. Wonderful actors. Promising debut by Betzer.
