Two best friends retrace their steps in hopes of locating a missing item after a seemingly average night. “Journal,” directed by Alex Bliss, takes what should be a mundane scenario and pumps it full of anxiety and paranoia. The friends spend the night getting high and watching TV. The next day, one of them realizes he may have left his bag at the other’s apartment and returns to retrieve it. As their accounts diverge of what happened to the bag, the nature of their relationship is both illuminated and confounded. Bliss renders the vignette with sharp editing and visceral imagery, placing his richly drawn characters on the edge of hidden feelings and complex repression. -KA. Director: Alex Bliss.
