This does contain spoilers.
When some one directs, acts, produces and writes their own movie, it ends up sacrificing the quality of the movie.
The pace is slow, dull and the plot goes missing with endless fillers. Fillers such as a debt collector bugging him. His family come over and tell Coby about his brother has a tumor (which went no where)at and a lengthy discussion about the gate for the car to enter being broken.
He is meant to have hearing problems, yet he is able to hear every thing.
If i was the script writer, i could of made the movie more interesting with the same budget and cast.
This is how I would of done it.
