{4/5} Haphead, released in 2015

Maxine has a temp job at a factory making cables for virtual reality games. She steals a cable so that she can play — a game where everyone looks like a rabbit teaches her to fight. Maxine’s father has a job as a security guard, but his passion is working on a graphic novel. Her father dies on the job — she decides this is suspicious and investigates along with her two best friends. This movie gives you a nice slice of life look at the near future — it ends in such a way that a sequel would be worthwhile. It looks very good for a low budget movie.

It’s written by Jim Munroe, author of Flyboy Action Figure Comes With Gasmask. I previously reviewed Munroe’s novel An Opening Act of Unspeakable Evil.

Directed by Tate Young (the documentary The Music of Madness).
