A tense film that reminds me of real life.
on 24 August 2014
Watched it thinking it was going to be a lighthearted braindead film but I really enjoyed it.
The film is extremely tense and displays what a real relationship is like through a lot of awkward silence and intense loving moments. It also cuts at just the right time making it feel like the memory of being "intimate" with someone rather than the clear cut sex scenes that allow us to see like in Hollywood.
The general feel of the film is that of being drunk and hungover and I have yet to see another film that truly managed to portray that feeling.
Good rough cinematography, tense editing, no Hollywood overuse of music and the acting was top.
Most of the lines in Drinking Buddies are improvised which shows the true nature of Jake Johnson's comedy; wonderful man.
