    ★★★★★

    Watched this again for a second time because I just remember it being so powerful and sitting with me long after the movie ended. And after this rewatch, it's a full 5 stars for me. There's something so low-key about it without ever becoming pretentious, even with the dialogue-less first 10 mins. Knowing how it ends made re-watching this all the more powerful.

    5 stars for representation with its all-gay, all-out cast but I can't say I enjoyed the film. There's just too much self-loathing for me and I find it hard to believe this is supposed to be a group of friends. It seems everyone hates each other and they don't even try to hide it. None of the characters were likeable. I wasn't invested enough in Larry and Hank to care about their relationship. The phone game also didn't feel as…
