I loved how the writer let his imagination go wild ...

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.

This has gotta be weirder than at least a third of the films on the "366 Weird" list. But one senses the writers had all the fun with the film's first half, and then had to sweat to figure out a story resolution.

The voice of the guy with the glasses directing the "documentary" sounds exactly like someone else, and I can't think who.

Why can't a movie like this get an oscar nomination for set design?

So weird, but the good kind of weird.
Worth watching for the set design alone.
