Bottoms

Bottoms ★★★★

It may be the age-old story of a bunch of losers trying to lose their virginity before they go off to college, but execution-wise, this movie just gives zero fucks. Adore how they really went all out with it and had it turned into a zany fever dream where a lot didn’t make sense and no one tried to make up for things not seeming real, à la the good old 2000s spoof. Everyone and everything were nuts and random and there wasn't any attempt to explain it all. Another thing that stands out is how it manages to be nostalgic and of the moment at the same time - the use of flip phones and phone books instead of smartphones, the portable cd player, the “shut up nerd, I fucked your mom” delivery etc. And that Avril Lavigne’s Complicated needle drop, man…movies are beyond back.
