It has been much too long since I’ve seen a Joe Swanberg movie, almost three years now since I last saw the director’s films LOL and Hannah Takes The Stairs. And while I did finally rewatch Hannah last week, I also watched a movie by him that I had not yet seen before which is titled Uncle Kent. Similar to his movie LOL, which dealt with the protagonist being obsessed with a girl he met online, Uncle Kent deals with a protagonist also dealing with a girl he met online – though it is a more concrete relationship this time around (especially as the girl is someone he meets on chat roulette). I did enjoy the movie quite a lot and I was instantly reminded on how many awesome flicks came out in 2011.
Thanks to Netflix for this good stream.
