JOHN'S GONE is a fever dream comedy. John sells things online, cheats off dollar stores, needs friends but settles for strangers, has roaches. He is punch drunk, not with love but something far more strange and lost. One can only say John's gone. With JOHN'S GONE, the Safdie brothers fully embrace the aesthetic of consumer-quality video, adding a touch of depravity to the proceedings and suggesting a time-out-of-joint aspect to the short that (visually) seems to date from two decades earlier.
