I don't fire myself (2021) NYAFF2021

A young woman is sent to the boonies by her bosses at the power company as retribution for her misdeeds. Falling in with the guys in the satellite office she begins to train to work on the high voltage towers.

Inert drama has eye candy visuals but minimal dialog and action as not a whole hell of a lot happens  and it has a non-ending. This is a film that needs a new script and better pacing because there is nothing here. Frankly other than a vile portrait of the power company who insists the under ten daughter of a dead lineman to sign away her rights moments after being told her dad is dead, there isn't much to talk about.

Had I known this didn't have anything close to an ending I would have bailed an hour it. Silly me I kept thinking thi would come together.


Frankly I don't know how this got programmed at a festival let alone got made.
