A 666-Character Review of ‘Watch the Sunset’
Watch the Sunset takes viewers to a small town in Australia and follows a day in the life of detestable protagonist, Danny. A unflinching view of what it takes to exit your friendly neighborhood heroin trade. Spoiler alert: it is not so friendly. Artfully done in a one-take shot and accompanied by a beautiful and effective score, this film is aesthetically pleasing (save for the obviously fake Sharpie tattoos on the antagonist). The character development is intriguing; the two leads are multidimensional. It is worth questioning the value of the film, when others have covered the same subject matter in the past. Full warning that this is not a feel-good film.
