Dave (Thune), an artist who has yet to complete anything significant in his career, builds a cardboard fort in his living room out of pure frustration, only to wind up trapped by the fantastical pitfalls of his own creation. Ignoring his warnings, Dave’s girlfriend Annie (Kumbhani) leads a band of oddball explorers on a rescue mission. Once inside, they find themselves trapped in an ever-changing supernatural world, threatened by booby traps and pursued by a bloodthirsty Minotaur.
Filled with pop culture references, flights of fantasy, and impressive amounts of craft-store-gore, DAVE MADE A MAZE is an incredibly fun first feature from writer/director Bill Watterson that ranks with the films of Michel Gondry for sheer handmade imagination.
DAVE MADE A MAZE (2017) dir Bill Watterson w/Meera Rohit Kumbhani, Nick Thune, Adam Busch, Stephanie Allynne, James Urbaniak, Kirsten Vangsness, Rick Overton [80 min; DCP]
