Not loads of of us like Backyard State nowadays. Take into account: Noisey’s 10th-anniversary article, which calls it “a love story for a technology of sexually inept sociopaths.” Or Jezebel’s anniversary piece, which notes that Zach Braff has “a superbly spherical mouth like a lamprey.” Why the hate? Most likely as a result of it’s a film from 2004 a few delicate, deep twentysomething white man, and popular culture has largely packed its baggage and moved on from that cursed micro-genre.
For his half, Braff has denied that the film is dangerous, although he has but to reply to the allegations that he has a lamprey mouth. However let’s see Zach Braff deny this: Backyard State can be vastly improved with an all-Dave Matthews Band soundtrack.
It’s a match made in hell. Backyard State’s solipsistic hipsterism can be undercut by Dave Matthews, whose terminally uncool bleat poisons all the things round him. With out Braff’s impeccably curated soundtrack, Backyard State loses its trump card; the masks slips, and the vacancy is revealed.
