Looks good - I want to see it.

Man, whenever I see a guy that hugely massive in an acting role, all I can think about is how choice it would be for Marvel to make a Peter-David-era X-Factor movie with Strong Guy in it.

Having liked the short film, I'm excited about the feature. The Thailand plot device looks to be both heartwarming and accurate [nsfw].

Saw this at Film Forum. The pace of the film was at times tortuously slow, but it was a good movie.

Seems like something out of the "swole acceptance movement".

I thought "Dennis" was an amazing piece of work. Looking cautiously forward to this. Thanks!

Saw the short film on one of Film Movement's DVDs. They usually pair their features with a bonus short from another filmmaker. Good to see Matthiesen developed it out. Plus I got an excuse to plug Film Movement, one of my favorite film distributors.
