Nifty dark comedy. The plot is a bit too predictable and the film lacks a little bite, but the characters are great, the acting is top notch, the comedy dry as can be and stylistically everything is on point. It's a strong debut, making Finley someone to look out for in the future.

A quirky little sci-fi. It's not an outright comedy, but Finley leans into the weirdness and absurdity of the story and the result is a remarkable film. It's a peculiar mix of genres that makes it difficult to compare to any other film I've seen. If not for the lack of urgency, this could've been a true gem.

It's been five years since first contact. We've learned a lot from the aliens, but society has been split in two. The rich live in fancy floating housing projects, the poor live on Earth. Adam is a young artist whose life is about to change when the aliens are impressed by the artwork he creates.

The aliens are strange little creatures, weird, square blobs of meat speaking an unintelligible language and sporting a few key cultural differences. The effects can be a tad too crummy and the plot is somewhat meandering, but the performances are strong and the film kept me on my toes until the very end. A fun surprise.
