The Monster is a short film by Director Damien Kazan. Set in the late ’90s, the film presents a coming of age story. The film takes a look at the life of a young teen and (some) teen troubles. One would assume “real” monsters don’t really have a part to play in teen troubles, but in this film, they do. While certainly not your regular James P. Sullivan, I imagine the monster is just an awkward monster, who turns out to be a wingman.
“Clearly, that’s not what The Monster is about”, you say.
To which, I say, I want to believe.
