Flatbush Misdemeanors: Episode One (Slamdance 2018) - Short Film Review

The Movie: Flatbush Misdemeanors: Episode One

The Directors: Dan Perlman and Kevin Iso

The Cast: Dan Perlman, Kevin Iso, Kareem Green, Jeffrey Joseph, Keturah Wright

The Story: Dan and Kevin, longtime friends, adjust to their new surroundings in the brash environment of Flatbush, Brooklyn.

The Review:
Flatbush Misdemeanors is a five part web series created, written, produced, directed, and starring Dan Perlman and Kevin Iso who come from New York's stand up and comedy writers' scene. Episode one was made available as a short film entry during Slamdance and, after checking it out, I have to say these guys might really be on to something.

Working with no budget, this is street level film making at it's finest. It is funny, it is raw, it is edgy, and it is surprisingly deep when you read between the lines. In just 15 minutes, they touch on education, infidelity, drug abuse, crime, dysfunctional families, friendships, depression, anxiety, poverty, and how all of it is basically the Brooklyn way of life. Looking forward to seeing what these guys can come up with next.
