TANGERINE

ColeSmithey.comJaw-dropping neo-realism.

Writer/director Sean Baker is our modern equivalent to the great John Cassavetes. 

For all of the easy access to smartphones with excellent video cameras, only Sean Baker is making anything this impactful on an iPhone 5S.

Get real.

"Tangerine" is a good litmus test for a date movie.

Only two kinds of people, hypocrites or narcissists. Take into account that a narcissist is someone who refuses to admit they're a hypocrite; we are all hypocrites, every one of us.
