UNCLE KENT 2
2015, 73 minutes
Review by Joshua Handler
Uncle Kent 2 has everything and the kitchen sink and then some in it. It's the kind of film where Rohal, Osborne, and crew decided that they would put everything they could in without caring if it made sense in the traditional kind of way. I say "traditional" because after about 20 minutes, we realize that anything is possible in this movie.
I can't say whether Uncle Kent 2 is a "good" or "bad" movie, but I can say that it is worth a watch if you can handle something this offbeat. It's a film full of ideas that are explored in a manner that no one can fault for being unoriginal. The cast seems to be enjoying themselves immensely, which makes viewing Uncle Kent 2 like watching a group of friends making a bizarre home movie at a party. Of particular note is Steve Little who plays a doctor who helps Kent with an auditory issue. His performance is among the more memorable in a film full to the brim of memorable performances.
Overall, there hasn't been another movie quite like Uncle Kent 2. Again, it isn't for everyone, but this one will hopefully find its audience. This is a cult film in the making. And hey, if you don't get anything else out of this movie, maybe it will introduce you to the work of Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies is one of my favorites of the past few years).
There's no way to assign a score on a film like this. I will say that I recommend Uncle Kent 2 to those who love cult films.
