Brotherly Love
Jeff, Who Lives At Home
Review by Ross Anthony

Surprisingly Good. The production takes a rather raw, direct approach to telling their story. The break from the standard formula is refreshing. Despite a few instances of illegal substance use and rough language, the film is far more about an almost spiritual intuition and brotherly love. I'd have never thought that by the poster shot, but this is truly a lovely film. I went there for a few yucks (which were heartily delivered), and was treated to a warmed-heart and a few good tears. Who would have thought a film named "Jeff, who lives at Home" would shoot for the heart?

Its cinematic style resembles that of "The Office" and even "Curb your Enthusiasm." Amidst the complex, distracting, and often draining minutia of everyday, the script endeavors a more philosophical reflection on this serendipitous event called "our lives." The duration is a bit short, that's pretty much my only complaint. I would have liked to enjoy the film a little longer.
