Bo Burnham has had a fascinating arc from obnoxious teenager to sincere and nuanced screenwriter and director. Eighth Grade is one of my favorite films from 2018, and I talk about one of the reasons why in this video (there are no spoilers).

I also reccomend you check out the interviews I referenced in the video:

Directors Before: What we can learn about his style from Terrence Malick's first film, Badlands
