Every day that passes in New York City, Jeff finds a way to get through it. Maybe he’s driven to find love. Maybe he’s driven to find a connection. Or maybe he’s just driven to do what he has to do to survive, however erratic or unforgivable it might be.
Nick Kush: As evident in my consistent sharing of Howard Ratner memes, I love the Safdies Brothers, and I’m always excited to hear about any filmmaker who is inspired by their work. Julian Muller’s Sickboy has a lot of the same grit as some of their films, following a lonely man as he moves aimlessly through New York City. (Muller choosing to shoot on film is sneakily the best aspect of the entire short.) Luckily, this isn’t a stereotypical loner film, it has far more compassion for its main character.
