People Places Things Review

Screen Shot 2015-12-08 at 6.19.33 PM   After a really long time without reviewing anything, I’m glad to come back and review Clement’s People Places Things. People Places Things follows the exact recipe of the standard indie film, having one recognizable actor who plays a troubled dude with a really random job, but thanks to its clever writing and enough quirks that differentiate it from other films that follow the same tropes yet not enough to make it a wannabe Wes Anderson film, People Places Things proves an enjoyable film that really understands what it means to be a human. I hadn’t really seen much of Clement, or maybe I had but I didn’t recognize him, at least I didn’t until this years hilarious What We Do in the Shadows, parting off that point, Clement plays an entirely different role in this film and though he portrays the humanity and natural being of this character really well, there are occasional moments where Clement stumbles into the Tom Hardy Mad Max territory where he just sort of grumbles through scenes at times. As for the rest of the cast, they all serve the story the way they are supposed, but none of them really stand out, except for the twins who are insanely cute as the comment about life with their dad. It’s a small film, so there’s not much to say about it, its a funny take on real-life moments, a charming twist on hat divorcees go through and a genuinely fun ride through our protagonists life, leading me to rank it a 67 out of 100.
