1 hour long short story

I had no expectations and didn't look into the movie before I watched it. I just put this on, knowing Bob Odenkirk was in it.

I don't really understand why, but it seemed like the plot was intentionally nonsensical and simple. It was a weird mix of very predictable and very confusing. Like a greeting card, perhaps?

I enjoy experimental movies just as well as popular ones, but after watching it, I can't help but feel like it should either have been shorter, or had more content.

What I'm really trying to wrap more nicely than it feels, is that I think the writing felt unfinished. Or perhaps the first sketch after a writer's block. Yeah, that bad. I think the only moral or interesting point brought up in the movie was the quote in the opening scene.

Yet, I still enjoyed Bob's acting, but none of the characters really stood out to me in this one. I guess most notable to me was Natasha Lyonne, playing her usual playful character and Steven Michael Quezada playing his usual dutiful and determined working-class character. Amber Tamblyn had a few interesting moments as well - but it all felt very rushed and underdeveloped.

I'll be very surprised if this will end up rated highly. I think I might even have overrated it.

Quirky at Best

This was a short fairly low budget picture that got made due to Bob Odenkirk and his name after Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. If we had to see the Los Angeles river flood channel (or whatever they call it) one more time I was going to scream. The city must charge very little to shoot there at it was almost a character. I found a few places to laugh but not enough to recommend this as a comedy. It is an offbeat quirky picture with some nice scenes but nothing more. The one standout performance was Amber Tamblyn as Jill.

What Saul Goodman did before Law School

This could have been the prequel to Better Call Saul which, of course, is the prequel to Breaking Bad. For better or for worse I like the fact that there is a market for these little pieces because we definitely need a bridge between a full feature film and a series. I had said many times that what is wrong with most movies and series is that they have no idea about how much time they need to tell their story. A film needs to go 90 minutes and most can't entertain for that long (if they entertain at all). Most series have the idea of going on and on until the viewers start throwing rotten fruit at the screen. Are you really trying to tell me that you need seven seasons to tell a story about zombies? This went an hour and five minutes which was about perfect to tell this odd little tale.
