Downfalls High (2021)

Was hoping this would be a full movie (saw the trailers before there was an IMDB page or duration for it), but it feels more like a collection of songs from the album tied together with a somewhat make-shift plot, than a story in its own regard. The moments from the trailer without music are some of the only moments of that kind, and the acting's not all perfect but... the music does help. It's a journey, real 'movie' or no.

I feel like this had potential to be so much more though. To be both a real movie and a real music video. Where the songs fit better in. Where they give things time and don't have the bits of acting more like skits between the tracks, but the tracks the occasional bits that really amplify the plot. Where they showcase the main character more so than MGK. Or have him act main character if he really wants to be the showcase.

In the end he and Travis are everywhere, and the actual story falls short. Gets sidelined. Comes second.

And I really wish he'd had a crowd at the end there. Depressing end or no. It's art. Simplified or no. Van Gogh or mo. All I know is I don't know nothing.

This hybrid album/movie thing can be seen for free here btw.

And hey, first 2021 movie review right here.

 rated 3.5/5: not bad at all

    For a moment I thought I might actually be able to catch up with all I'd been missing when March 2020 came along, but alas!

    There certainly are fewer blockbusters though...
