For context, I’m a fan of Mark Duplass, but I find some of his stuff unwatchable. His improv style for movies walks a fine line between good and unwatchable garbage.
I just watched The One I Love, which I had never heard of before, and it has immediately become one of my very favorite movies.
I’d like to recommend it, and discuss it, but I can’t in good conscience describe anything about it for fear of spoiling it. Not even the genre, though I can say that it isn’t a horror movie. (ie: If you won’t watch horror movies, no worries here.)
If you have ever liked any Mark Duplass movie, I urge you to watch this. It’s far and away his best movie, I think. While it is (of course) largely improved dialogue, like all his movies, this one has more polish than any of his other efforts. It looks and feels like a real movie, with a real cinematographer, and a real script.
And what a script! I had no idea what this movie was about, but Netflix predicted I would give it 4 stars so I grudgingly watched it. I gave it 5.
