Review: Digging For Fire, 2015, dir. Joe Swanberg


“With another year comes another Joe Swanberg joint about middle-class ennui. There are any number of reasons to roll one’s eyes at the prolific indie filmmaker’s latest, Digging For Fire—its blatant heteronormativity, adherence to traditional gender roles, unscripted moments of marble-mouthed philosophizing, and severely unlikable characters. But in the department of good news, Swanberg’s go-to cinematographer, Ben Richardson, manages to compensate for the visual crimes of last year’s Happy Christmas by keeping his images in focus.” (Via Movie Mezzanine.)
