There's a broadness and conceptual overtness to the film that will inevitably limit some folks' experience of this punkish project, but for those who use the yardstick of "have I seen something like this before?" Hello Dankness thrillingly pushes toward the novel. Something like an Adam Curtis film by way of Harmony Korine. Who isn't itching for that?
Pure mood piece. Integrates its nonfiction elements in compelling and organic ways, but also seems overly reliant on their "authenticity" to build depth into a film lacking a strong perspective. An existential wanderer meeting folks on the road is an easy, not unpleasant way to spend time, but there's the intimation of depth here that is never sufficiently architected.
