A Rehash of The Builder
19 April 2017 | by pegasus3See all my reviews

Basically a rehash of the same theme--- the world of a depressed individual--- that was explored in THE BUILDER, a film Alverson produced a year earlier. Only this time everything is transferred to a used tire shop. Lots of day to day minutiae, images which offer little of any substance with which the viewer can begin to understand what is transpiring in the protagonist's mind or what, if any, message the film is intended to convey.
