Cannes Film Festival – Deadline

Talk about multiverse. In a parallel universe that you seem to have at the moment, a bunch of boys – and adult males – are living so differently from you that they too could be aliens. You can see Owen Klein’s managers in Fortnite headlines Funny pageHang out all day at a store that sells old comics, argue about the subtle plot points and originality of the first superhero comics or otherwise their own homemade genes.

They are not a completely simple watch. The store’s strip lighting is unforgivable – and you just don’t want to see them eat, even though some of them don’t. For these boys, verbal communication is seemingly a matter of principle. They’re only interested in talking to each other, so it doesn’t really matter.

Young Robert (Daniel Zolgadri), the son of professional parents, doesn’t look like a hard core fanboy – although he probably smells like them – but it’s the castle of his dreams. George (Andy Milonakis) takes his place in the middle of the store, where he can cough everyone up. Robert’s friend Miles (Miles Emanuel), whom he treats with contempt and who is obviously in love with him, begins to discuss comics, asking the question, “Is form more important than the soul?” Everyone understands the importance of Archie and Jughead. Why go to school, because Robert, when he can stay here? Why go to college, the only future her parents can face for her, when all she wants to do is draw cartoons Crazy Magazine?

It is not difficult to see why this protesting polarity would appeal to the Safdi brothers, who were among the producers to make their debut under Klein’s management. (Kevin’s son Klein, still known as an actor like Indy Hire) Squid and whale.) It may be set in the suburbs instead of in Safdies’ favorite urban grifters, but it got real grit. When Robert leaves his parents’ house to rent a room in a dirty basement flat, you can almost smell the foul smell of rats.

The flat is – probably – Barry’s, a sticky man with a combo and a fondness for 1940s B-movies, who welcomed him. He sleeps on the floor next to Stephen’s bed, and he’s a “funny fan.” As he puts it. “Dick Tracy, Blondie, Dennis the Evil Men’s with his slingshot!” He leaned on Barry’s bed and sang. All of these are games for comedy, though the most tragic kind. Funny page Clearly these nerds, geeks and obsessives are making a case for those who are rarely center-level, but Klein’s approach to his subjects is so hum-bam that the so-called nerds are seen as something more than pathetic, even disgusting. As I said, not an easy watch.

At least Robert is presentable. After accusing her of breaking and entering – don’t ask – the maternity lawyer in charge who represents her (Marcia Dibonis) and who sees perhaps the least presentable person gives her a job in her office. Here he meets repeat defendant Wallace (Matthew Maher), whose list of convicts for the attack is not half interested in Robert because he worked as a color divider in comics. Sure enough she’s a genius, Robert befriends her, even asks her home for Christmas. In exchange for pancakes and $ 300, he has no motivation to steal from his mother (Maria Diagea) – Wallace will give Robert an accurate, professional lesson in real comic drawing.

It’s clear that puffing, splattering, paranoid wallace is crazy and possibly crazy violent. It’s also clear – partly because he keeps saying – that he’s not an artist. The fact that Robert attaches himself to her like a lamplight is clearly meant to be a high-comic hyperbole, but it doesn’t work that way: it means that Klein engages himself in a story that no one can believe for a second.

Robert’s father (Josh Pais) tells him he’s a bad brat. Fair enough, but he’s not a psychologically confusing Brat. Will he really beat up a guy at Wallace’s instruction, let him steal his car, cover for him when he breaks his parents’ window in hopes of learning more about cross-hatching? How unpleasant all this is, from beginning to end, without actually being ridiculous. This picture will find his constituency, that’s for sure. It is well made and made with suffix. I’m sure it will become a cult favorite. Entrepreneurs are welcome.
