    ★★★

    Jungleland, directed by Max Winkler, is a formulaic, but also a pretty decent poetic journey through aimlessness. I decided to rent this film real quick, and although I wasn’t extremely impressed, I genuinely did enjoy it for the most part.

I've never seen the films they've made for marvel, as it's not my thing, but I generally found their directing in this feature to be some of the most annoying and self indulgent direction I've seen in a while. Some of it…
