aka Go Get Some Rosemary, aka A Fuckup Under the Influence. Amply evokes life under frantic parent. Vaguer at edges.
A semi-autobiographical stratagem without the queasy ethics of Tarnation. A record of unconventional collaboration. A sturdy case for low-budget, location-specific, improv-based character study.
