i enjoyed 2023 movies more when I was watching Theater Camp (2023)
might be the greatest nz movie ever tbh
most nz films suffer from having aspects that make them feel cheap. whether that be weak acting, boring camera work, terrible nz humour or just shitty storytelling.
everything about this was well done. an important narrative that didnt feel overdramatised or forced in any way. the acting was good, the little moments of comedy were fitting (didnt feel forced and weren't fucking dry). the production value was better than literally any other…
