Mutt (2023). 1h 27m

“Saw this at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Muttu0026quot; is a story about the character of Feña, a young trans guy bustling through life in New York City, is afflicted with an incessantly challenging day that resurrects ghosts from his past. This is director Vuk Lungulov-Klotz first feature film and it proves there is passion behind this project. As a whole, the film is decent with strong performances and concepts explored.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThroughout, the film has beautiful camerawork as the 1:33:1 aspect ratio helps to create the atmosphere of tension and the chaotic scenario. The performances are pretty good especially Lío Mehiel and Cole Doman as both were able to capture all emotions of raw, stress, anger, and such. Alongside with a nice soundtrack and some interesting commentary on post-transition.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI understand where the narrative is heading as the narrative explores about gender transitioning, reconnecting with loss loved ones and all but while there are some interesting moments, the narrative doesnu0026#39;t always have an strong impactful as certain moments felt a bit dull. The characters have their interesting moments but some of the characters were a little difficult to connect with. I understand why the characters are written that way but certain characters didnu0026#39;t feel fleshed out enough to really connect with fully.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe production is solid and there were some moments that were pretty genuine on the emotional levels. Post Trans-transition is a concept that could be explored more in-depth and u0026quot;Muttu0026quot; isnu0026#39;t the best one but itu0026#39;s an decent film that explores the subject.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you want another film about post trans-transition, I recommend u0026quot;52 Tuesdaysu0026quot;.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRating: B-“
