And the Oscar Goes To… Not a Clue

Review: Light Years

Okay, this is an odd one. But it’s also a pleasant ride. Colin Thompson wrote and directed and (this is the weird part) stars as almost all the characters in the film. At first it’s confusing. Do all the actors look somewhat alike? Then you realize they are all the same guy in wigs and disguises. That is, except one goofy kid named Briggs (Russell Posner), and that’s because the main character Kevin is tripping on mushrooms and remembering back to a particular night with Briggs, back in 1999 when they and another high school buddy did ‘shrooms and had a ton of fun. There’s definitely a lot of adolescent behavior, but it’s sweet and silly and shot in a wonderfully creative manner that will keep you watching.
