About

"This film is punk as hell. In the end [I'm Not Patrick] feels like a cherished cassette demo rather than some corporate label product. I kept thinking about Twin Peaks and Harold and Maude while watching—mostly because of the macabre material but also the surreal world that’s created—but actually it’s more akin to a short story by Kafka or Saunders."
Heavy Feather Review


Synopsis

I’m Not Patrick is a black comedy that follows Seth, a teenager whose twin brother, Patrick, has suddenly, tragically, committed suicide. Seth doesn’t know what to feel, but everyone is eager to suggest what they imagine to be typical reactions to monozygotic suicide.

Whether it’s the rival twins’ landscaping company encroaching on Seth’s turf, or the school guidance counselor hovering close-by, or the French club electing him honorary president (a position that Patrick had occupied), Seth struggles to assert his individuality and insist that "I’m not Patrick."

Reviews

"Bridging contemplations on identity with witty digressions, the dark comedy is an approachable, offbeat tale."
—The Columbus Alive

"The perfect marriage, the aesthetics... along with the story."
The Nervous Breakdown
