Review: Doomsdays, 2015, dir. Eddie Mullins

Doomsdays-Poster

“When one door closes, another opens. In Eddie Mullins’ Doomsdays, that second door is actually a window through which his protagonists, Dirty Fred (Justin Rice) and Bruho (Leo Fitzpatrick), make a hasty egress. They’re vagabonds living off the grid by choice, breaking and entering into empty vacation homes in the Catskills in search of sustenance and shelter. When we first meet them, they’re in the process of being abruptly dislodged from their current temporary residence when its owners make an unexpected return. This becomes the film’s common routine: our lawless, nomadic heroes mark their territory (sometimes literally), settle into a not-so-humble abode, get soused, and make a run for it when they’re caught out. It’s tough being a doomsaying hipster.” (Via Birth.Movies.Death.)
