"I first discovered POST CONCUSSION at the Austin Heart of Film Festival back in '99. It was an awkward situation, because I met Danny Yoon the filmmaker and really liked him. He invited me to come see his film, and I was worried that I wouldn't like it, but felt obliged to attend the screening.
Thankfully I went. POST CONCUSSION is one of the most charming films I have ever seen. Although at times it feels like it was glued together, that is one of the film's charms. Everything about this film is a delight, from the acting to the script to the directing. I have personally introduced this film to about a dozen people, and I have yet to know anyone who didn't just love it.
It's the story of an aggressive yuppie who gets konked on the head, and is forced to re-evalute his life when he can no longer "keep up with the Jone's". The subtelties of this film as the protagonist moves from cynic to empathetic human involves you, the viewer, so much as a human being, you can't help but laugh along with his absurd journeys ranging from him being an animated slug, to interacting with the television, to him doubting a self-help "guru" and finally telling his former co-workers/bosses to shove it. I am thrilled that this film finally found a distributor.
No offense meant when I say that Danny Yoon is the Asian Woody Allen. He is a filmmaker who truly knows the language of comedy and cinema and deserves his day in the sun.
POST-CONCUSSION is an absolute delight."
