Feels very authentic and impressively captures some great performances
Low budget feel is initially distracting, slightly slow start, BUT Stellar performances. I felt like I was hanging out with real crackheads.
Surprised at how well this was done on such a low budget and shot on iPhone from what I read. Pretty solid characters and story.
Sean Baker is the master of this subgenre which includes gems like Tangerine. Great fast-paced comedy
It started off feeling very amateurish even for a film shot in an iPhone 5, but as it developed it showed that it was worth taking seriously
A moving and very funny comedy about transgender sex workers and the various people in their lives over the course of one Christmas Eve
Vibrant and creatively shot, with tons of interesting characters.
Incredibly touching, important story creatively shot with impressive cinematography.
Incredible perspective, and legitimately hilarious. Similar to Baker’s others, but legitimately affecting.
Super entertaining characters. The use of the iPhone benefits the film showcasing the trashy vibe of the story. Would recommend
