Ariela on Jonathan (2018) Tribeca 2018
It is the strange story of the relationship of two brothers. We see Jonathan record videos of his day. He talks about what he did that day, mentions leaving food for his brother in the fridge, talks about any encounters he had with neighbors or others during the day. Then we see Jonathan waking up and watching videos his brother recorded for him.
My first thought was that Jonathan had multiple personality disorder, but first I thought that would be too easy an answer and also remembered that this isn’t a psychological movie, but is labeled a sci-fi movie, so I thought it was something other than that. I won’t give away much.
The film is a strange one, and I’m not sure what I think about it just yet. It’s going to stick in my mind for a while. I did hear several people talking about it after while waiting in the bathroom line, so it’s one you will think about after.
