Well, the title gives most of the movie away, Caity (Caity Jones) and
Paul (Douglas Reese), best friends by the look of it, do smoke pot and
yep, do get high - and then do what you might expect high people to do,
like talking shit that they feel is funny (sometimes inexplicably so),
going through his record collection, watching silly YouTube videos with a
passion, talking about guilty pleasure movies, and of course politics.
I admit, my synopsis doesn't make Caity and Paul Get High sound
like much, narrative-wise, and that's probably true even, but it's a
rather lovely slice-of-life movies that gets its entertainment value out
of the here-and-now of the situation, making this rather everyday story
(providing getting high is even "everyday" for these characters)
into something relateable, reminiscent maybe of some of Eric Rohmer's best
movies. Cinematically, Douglas Reese has chosen a very minimalistic style
(as ever so often), with mostly static shots, long takes, and little in
terms of cinematic trickery to detract from the story at hand - which
works rather beautifully here!
