Highly Suspect Reviews: Eighth Grade

0 Submitted by on Fri, 20 July 2018, 13:54

You wouldn’t think a little indie film about an adorable little eighth-grade girl who makes her own motivational youtube videos (that no one watches) and has trouble making friends or connecting with her father would be one of the most highly praised films of the year, but here we are. Comedian Bo Burnham writes and directs as if he was once a deeply insecure 13 year old himself. Listen to Chris, Aaron, and Ben talk about the film and find out if all the hype is true.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
