Nightstream 2021 Film #2

If you suffer from being unable to fall asleep, this film might be a better remedy than Ambien or Lunesta or any sleep aid.

There are some decent ideas here. A young man returns to his childhood home prior to it being razed. He finds an old VHS camcorder that captures the past when you look through it. He begins recording his memories. That’s about it.

Admittedly, I did drift in and out of consciousness at times, but I really do not feel like I missed anything. There’s not a lot that happens.

I’m not sure if this film was initially a short that got expanded to feature length. I think the film might have served itself well as a short film. Even at 75 minutes the film feels too long.
