A 666-Character Review Of ‘Like Me’
Life spirals when a loner named Kiya (Addison Timlin of Odd Thomas, The Town That Dreaded Sundown ’14) finds herself doing increasingly disturbing things, for her increasing online audiences admiration. We’ve got forced feedings, general insensitivity, fear based urination, and a bonus Fessenden? Striking neon lighting, interesting framing, surreal moments of looping intensity? Writer/director/editor Rob Mockler above all, has created a sensorially stimulating film to experience. Cyber/social media commentary isn’t necessarily a fresh concept, but somehow Like Me‘s strange, simple story about the need to connect, stands taller…even with its peculiar posture.
