Drylongso Review


Bad
Drylongso is an African-American term meaning "ordinary." This indie, telling the story of an Oakland girl who takes Polaroids for her 35mm photography class and works nights wallpapering on the streets goes nowhere fast. The plot centers around a friendship with another African-American girl who disguises herself as a man... and this friendship reveals what? Not a lot. Truly deserving of its name.
