I really have no idea what to feel about this movie. It’s all over the place on so many levels. The most obvious aspect to this film that through me was um... how do I put this? It’s Mr. Hands if the guy died and his friends tried to cover it up because they too are into getting fucked by horses. When this was revealed in the film, I had no idea how to react. Much like characters in this film, I rejected it. I need to watch this again before I can really say anything. I like the energy of the film, it’s well-made for sure, the soundtrack is consistently hilarious, the performances are comedically pretty good, and Zeke as our main character is incredibly sympathetic. This movie just had a lot I wasn’t really expecting. I was caught off guard and perhaps on rewatch I’ll be able to articulate how I feel. Don’t know if this good but it’s definitely a unique film people should see.

A PSA though: unlike how vaping is presented in this film, you DO NOT fire the vape before you start pulling off it. Homeboy fires his vape for like three seconds before even thinking of hitting it. That’s wrong and fucked up and every time it happened in the movie I got the sensation of nails on a chalkboard.
