Quick-Thoughts: Trey Edward Schults’s Krisha (2015)

If you ever feel like your family get-togethers can sometimes be a little unhinged, watch Krisha, and it might make you feel a little more grateful. 

When a movie made on an only $30,000 budget is directed, shot, written, acted (by amateur family members, need I remind you), and scored (with obvious influences from Punch-Drunk Love) this resourcefully, potential is inevitable; hence, the success of Trey Edward Shults. Krisha is a solid character study, and one that we don’t see told too often this affectionately when it comes to its “type” of character. Despite it being only 82 minutes long though, it’s final act definitely could’ve been cut down for pacing, but, yuh know, you’ve gotta reach that minimum “feature-length” duration requirement. 

The new way to spell “a-s-p-e-c-t r-a-t-i-o-s” should be “T-r-e-y E-d-w-a-r-d S-h-u-l-t-s.”

Verdict: B-

“Krisha” is now available to stream on Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Google Play, Vudu, and iTunes.
