Constructed the way a brain might actually process conflict, trauma, and transition, this film seethes with the dark side of emotion, allowing the viewer to become embroiled in each character's turmoil. The experience is effectively uncomfortable, an ultimately triumphant effort providing insight to perspective outside of one's own while bridging that gap with the familiarity of both feeling stuck and being jarred. Family rifts, mental illness, and the search to understand and accept oneself are intertwined through visual and aural art style unique to the filmmakers, breaking new ground. It is like nothing I've ever seen, and I hope to see much more from this team.
Breathless, daring, and undone in a million pieces. Describing both the film's style and main character, 1/1 submerges the audience into the mind of Lissa, a twenty-year-old girl trapped in rural Pennsylvania, who grapples with sex, drugs, love and loss. When a possible pregnancy forces Lissa to take a hard look at her life, both her and the structure of the film mature, illuminating a brighter path ahead.
