About the Movie
A reckless loner (Addison Timlin, Little Sister) sets out on a crime spree that she broadcasts on social media. After releasing a video of herself robbing a convenience store, she amasses a huge following. While traveling along the coast, she encounters a drifter, an Internet troll, and a paint huffing outsider who are all pulled into her circle of chaos, junk food, and drugs. Robert Mockler’s visually arresting debut feature, produced by indie horror veteran Larry Fessenden, takes the viewer into a world of fabricated personalities and offers a thought-provoking portrait of isolation in our increasingly digital world.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "Like Me" provides a reminder that bile and excrement are not substitutes for ideas.
Fresh: The film's lack of a traditional narrative will no doubt alienate many, but for the more adventurous, it offers a uniquely weird take on loneliness and lunacy.
Fresh: Both impish and melancholy, with Timlin and Fessenden handily shifting the molecules in the air each time they share a scene, "Like Me" has an eccentric bravura to it.
Fresh: Rises above the pack in a few ways - ranging from its ambitious style to the out-of-whack humanity of its two lead performances.
It was an amazing movie!!! I can’t wait to watch it all fried!!! #worpt !!!! Angles, editing, effects.. all amazing in this flick!
A Gruesome Yet Delicate Wonderland
Like Me is a poignant, thrilling, and intriguing piece that has stayed with me for weeks. The questions it asks about loneliness, vulnerability, intimacy, and one's purpose have lingered like a fog that won't clear in the best way. It's an incredible piece that is surreal, wild, and even gross at times while simultaneously inviting the audience to examine themselves and their role in their relationships and the world. This film builds a world that is surreal as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind with the grit and intelligence of The Lobster. You dive into a world of neon colors as the backdrop for an exploration of what it means and what it takes to feel accepted by another human being. While sometimes you have to hold on tight for its interesting twists and turns, the ride is most certainly worth it. The direction and acting are fantastic as you can see in real time the tension written on the young woman's face, weighing the costs of vulnerability and succumbing to her desire fulfill her insecure fantasies of controlling others to protect herself. It is a gruesome yet delicate wonderland built to challenge your perceptions of connection, reflect on empathy, and meditate on intimacy in the 21st century saturated in social media. The editing is spectacular with the ending leaving you in a quiet space hanging by a thread fraught with questions, grief, beauty, and even a moment of peace. This film invites you to meet-and-greet your demons in order to conquer them as it cautions you about the costs of leaving them be until they conquer you. Like Me is a rare cinematic experience that stays with you weeks after you leave the theater, one that feels like an elusive dream that you just can't shake.
