[6.75/10] Super Dark Times (2017)

Super Dark Times (2017)

Quick Review: Indeed as harshly realistic as its title implies, but in a highly believable and unsettling way, "Super Dark Times" is an affecting debut by Kevin Phillips, which starts as an innocent suburban teenage drama, but after a dramatic event in the first act, it changes course and enters a dark territory of guiltiness, disruption, conscience, and moral senses. The unexpected conclusion adds further shock value to this grim story about the perplexity of what is right and what is wrong.

Think I'd have to be in the mood for that kind of heavy.

Alex, if you loved Mean Creek, you'll enjoy this one as well.
