Uncle John, 2015 - ★★½

"This one I'd call crazy eyes, it looks like a cow version of Peter Falk" - Ben (Alex Moffat)

Understated blend of hick thriller and lo-fi hipster relationship drama. While it wasn't badly made, I found it far too lifeless. Its severe absence of music for most its 2 hour duration didn't help to hold my attention. That said, the fact its a first time feature and so damn inoffensive its hard not to be mildly impressed. I'd definitely check more of writer/director Steven Piet and its actors work out, purely because of how successfully it brought its three central characters to life.
