'Sleeping Giant' - Movie Review

Possibly the best reviewed Canadian movie of the last decade, currently sitting at 90% on Rotten Tomatoes.

"Sleeping Giant" is a place I've actually visited: an immense outcropping of rock about 50km from Thunder Bay, Ontario (where this movie is set) that vaguely looks like a sleeping human figure.

The movie is about three teens staying in the area for the summer - hanging out, smoking weed, chasing girls, being obnoxious. The movie is incredibly episodic, just showing occasional windows onto their activities until their anger and competition with each other reaches a peak. It seems like a fairly accurate portrayal of what it's like to be a teenager - but honestly it's not a part of my life I particularly want to remember, and it ends badly for these three. Fairly well done, but not comfortable or up-beat.
