Life is unpredictable and everyone has their own problems to solve. Lazy Bones is an Australian film directed by Michael Jones. Lazy Bones explores the life of main-character Ben who is an aspiring stand-up comedian and also works as an Uber driver.
The thing I liked about this film is the relatability and authenticity of the storyline. I found myself feeling sympathetic for Ben, as I could relate to a lot of the things he was going through during the film. I liked how the story line had a lot of balance. There were comedic scenes which gave contrast to the deep and meaningful ones. I also liked the technical production of the film. The interesting camera views and angles gave the storyline a unique feel.
However, there were some flaws in the film’s production. I didn;t like the shaky camera and some of the framing for the shots. How could the camera shake so much if it was on a tripod? Sometimes the subject was offscreen when it should have been in the middle. While the story is engaging, the plot is unclear and sometimes confusing. For example, all I saw was the story of a man trying to get his life in order. Lazy Bones plot was almost non-existent.
Overall, I really enjoyed this film. Although there were some problems with the technical aspects of the film. The story made me invest in the characters, particularly the main protagonist Ben. 7 out of 10 for me!
