How to interfere as a narrator and narrate about the interference, in The Willoughbys.
The director Kris Pearn, Cory Evans and Rob Lodmermeier’s The Willoughby is too much. Too much good, too much bad, too funny, too dramatic, too political, too sincere and at the end too much of a mess. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good film. It is just one of those films that keeps you engaged with fireworks on stage. Things keep happening. The film never slows down. And that’s what’s painful. You never get enough time to breathe. It stays stressful. I was so tense watching, hoping to understand the metaphorical layers of the film, but at the end all it gave was an adventure that never stops. That’s not an adventure. It felt like more of a punishment, a time-out by your parents.
