Bo Burnham: Inside

Bo Burnham: Inside ★★★★

Really good stuff. I’m always wary of people acting sad in front of a camera, but above all else this is about craving attention from an audience, so any moment where Bo is handsomely brooding in a perfectly composed shot doesn’t come off as disingenuous but more like a self-reflective coping mechanism, and at that point, whether it’s authentic or not doesn’t really matter. The internet and quarantine jabs somehow aren’t annoying well over a year into covid, and the reacting to himself bit is an all-timer. I wish I had done more with my time in the past year.
