“I am trying my best for that kid, but I am in pain like a motherfucker.”
A deeply personal vision quest of a film led by Shia LaBeouf to understand the heart of Shia LaBeouf’s struggles, holding a mirror up to his father and seeing himself seeing his father seeing himself.
My VHS cover pull-quote: “My dad was a big smoker. Sometimes, I catch a whiff of Newport cigarettes when I’m out and I kind of savor it just like Shia LaBeouf smoked and drank to emulate and share something he recognized as inextricable from his dad. In conclusion, I am Shia LaBeouf. You are Shia LaBeouf. We are all Shia LaBeouf.”
