    This is delightfully silly.

    It's not a masterpiece by any measure but 80min entertainingly spent :D

    I love it when a movie uses its constraints to its advantage. Dave Made a Maze obviously has a small budget, but manages a unique fantasy/horror experience by making all its sets, monsters and effects out of cardboard and other arts n crafts supplies. Imbued with magical realism, the movie has Dave build a small-but-bigger-on-the-inside labyrinth out of cardboard boxes in his living room. His friends (and girlfriend played by the very watchable Meera Rohit Kumbhani) go in after him and discover it's a living, breathing organism filled with wonder, homemade beauty, strange transformations, and killer booby traps. The tone is definitely comedy, so the scares aren't very scary, and one of the friends is a very obnoxious documentary film maker who gives people cues as to what they should say. I find him a bit annoying, but he does support the theme of trying to force a creation into a certain shape and failing until you let go of your initial idea and let it dictate how it should be finished. Dave Made a Maze is as much about its own making as a film, ostensibly, as it is about the maze or the documentary about the maze. Written and directed by Bill Watterson, but not that Bill Watterson, though with its imagination come to life premise, I could have believed the creator of Calvin and Hobbes would have dreamed this up. 1 year 6 months ago
