        Phillips has nailed what is a simple storyline, the atmosphere is unbearable at times and the escalation makes this one of the best films of 2017. This looked to be a simple teen thriller but the critical acclaim surrounding this film is what grabbed my attention and I wasn't disappointed. Phillips is going to develop into a filmmaker to watch and if you are looking for a film that spirals into something unpredictable, ensure you check this film out. Great acting and just a film that needs to be discovered. 24/02/2018.

        Any time a movie looks like it's trying to hit the "Fucked Up Coming of Age Movie" notes, I'm interested. Super Dark Times is perhaps not the grandest example of them all, but it's still a very good one.

        One of the little inspected factors of growing up is the curious rivalry between friends, and this story takes a look at that under the microscope of the most extreme of situations: the vying for the affections of a woman. The director keeps things interesting and fresh, aided by decent performances, as a sword (yes, sword like in Conan or Tolkien) becomes the deciding bone of contention, well, that and the accidental murder of a friend. Worthy.
