I was so excited to watch ‘Daydream Nation’ over the weekend with it’s Sonic Youth references and lovely musical soundtrack. Ugh. Horrific. It started off very ‘Heathers’ like and ended in a insipid, droll and pathetic manner. I feel like writing Kat Dennings and asking her ’what happened to the cool and smart acting job in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist’. Ugh. I give it 1/5.
But if you want to catch a film with some hootspa, will make you cry, cringe, scream aloud in your condo, giggle so hard that you splash tea on the floor in that same condo….please watch NEDS. I haven’t seen such a beautifully written and acted film in a long time. Once you get past the strong Scottish accents you will truly appreciate the strong characterization and truly British sense of humour and sarcasm. If you have a weak stomach; the violence will upset you. I give it 5/5.
