I saw this on Reddit.
I have to drive 4 hours to watch it, but I thought it looked interesting.
I wonder how many young filmmakers think five 20-minute takes are a new cutting edge thing. I wonder how many have heard of Hitchcock.

As much as I am an advocate of film, I just didn't see what the big deal was. It's great to project your film via 35mm prints as one form of exhibition. But from a business standpoint, you're kind of cutting your nose off to spite your face if you don't deliver any kind of DCP, as well.
And yes - how are 20-minute takes suddenly indigenous to 35mm? That actually turned me off to the film.

I am certainly going to go see it when it comes to Boston... In their case, they might generate more interest with this whole 35mm release thing than a general release as it has no big name actors and they likely don't have the publicity machine of a major studio to get the word out to come see the movie. We will never know for sure though.
