Watching someone dig into and roll around on a comforter reminded me of various animals I’ve been responsible for in my life (as well as some children I have not been responsible for), which certainly amused me and that’s never a bad thing. 

Plot shouldn’t really be much of a concern with things like Comforter, in all reality, but if you’re curious it concerns a lady who feels too high and rolls around on a comforter and whatnot as she continues to feel high.

There’s some stuff towards the end of Comforter I don’t think I found as interesting or noteworthy as I was perhaps intended, but before those developments I was on board with a lady feeling too high to function (maybe I can relate to such a thing in a past life…).

Another recognizable behavior I personally found amusing was the high woman trying to see the contents of a bookcase in front of her as I was–if I’m being perfectly honest–trying to see what was on the bookcase behind her. 

That’s at least a couple true-to-life kinds of moments in less than ten minutes, which is more than many features can fit into 90 minutes. I also appreciate the steady camerawork on display throughout Comforter, but who doesn’t? I’d happily watch a feature length take on more fleshed out material from those involved.

Comforter is currently playing at Slamdance 2021.
