Daniel isn't real - a traipse through our darkest parts

Daniel Isn't Real blew me away. It's about a nice sensitive young man who is troubled by a slick, confident figure he last recalls seeing banished away in his childhood. As things deteriorate in his own life, his control on the suave and increasingly dangerous Daniel wanes.

I loved the raw emotionality of it, you feel like you're taking a trip through both the protagonist and Daniel - as well as the horrifying tether that holds them together. It's by turns visceral yet dreamlike. And without giving away too much, its dark plot takes many an unexpected turn.
