We all know Millennials are the boogeymen hiding in closets, the vampires flying through windows. They’re the terrifying monsters that promise exposure only to force you into unpaid servitude citing that it was just a prank, bro.
It’s about time some filmmaker explored the septic depths of the Millennial mind, and first-time director Robert Mockler may succeed with LIKE ME.
I’m very much digging this coming trend of neon lit surrealist horrors with works like Beyond the Black Rainbow and The Neon Demon. Loose atmosphere and strange imagery can capture the feeling of being a person struggling through the world more so than a straightforward narrative. LIKE ME will hopefully fit nicely into this niche.
The film follows a loner as she livestreams a crime spree, which gains her internet attention. As she journeys along the coast, she meets a drifter, an internet troll, and a paint huffing outsider. They’re all pulled into a kaleidoscope of chaos, junk food, and drugs. It looks neat.
LIKE ME is being released by Kino Lorber and will be hitting VOD on February 20th.
