Stress Positions (2024). 1h 35m

“Watched this at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFilmmaker Theda Hammel clearly has an interesting satire concept but unfortunately despite good performances and interesting fun dialogue moments, the messy narrative and annoying and unpleasant characters create a more unsatisfying story.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHammelu0026#39;s use of satire during the pandemic, people, and gender is interesting as there are some good camerawork and production designs used throughout. The performance from John Early was pretty good as he has lots of wonderful energy. However, Hammel really provides some really unlikable characters that whether they were intentionally annoying, it felt forced and really stressful to observe. As if each character is purposefully made to be as unlikeable and annoying to care.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSorry but I would say I wanted to laugh but I only had a few moments and the rest of the humor was pretty bad. There are some good musical choices and I did like some of the insane moments during the third act. But at the end, it honestly felt as the movie went nowhere really.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI think Theda Hammel has talents but here, sorry, not for me.”
