After every show, a stand-up comedian takes a trip to reunite with her daughter, since they’ve grown apart.
Narrative cinema is agonizing at TV gunpoint all over the Earth. We’re seeing more and more plot twists, season finales, and other artifices the home screen is squeezing like a dried up orange. Cinema defends itself with the one thing they can’t take away from it: the atmospheres, the mood, the phasing, cinematography, and tone. So, several novel filmmakers are leading the defense of good taste. Alverson is one of them, and his fourth film fills up the screen with style and heart. Entertainment is a road movie, but it’s also an existential comedy with Cassavettian dialogues and a cast that is fully in tune, in this true gem of 2015. SDC
