There's something really special about this movie. A movie made for anyone who fights for social connection with others. For those who want more from life and don't understand why it all feels so... superficial. It's a long and deep conversation that becomes as much of a pleasant and fulfilling surprise to "Wally" as it progressed as it did to anyone not expecting the way they too would be sucked in.

I came out of this experience feeling exactly what both of these characters talked about feeling when they felt the most alive. And anyone who is there with me, knows how profound a feeling that is.

Two guys talk in a resturant in real time. I can usually handle "slower" movies, but I just found this mostly tedious.

The conversation is incredibly interesting and compelling. It surprised me that it could capture my attention. You should be aware though that it is 99,9% dialogue. You could close your eyes and you wouldn't miss much, if anything, in my opinion.
