C.O.G. is the first time David Sedaris has ever given permission for his work to be adapted to film—and maybe it’s a rule he should’ve stood by. Based on a story in Naked, it's about a young man who flees his East Coast family to work on an apple orchard in Oregon. The film pointedly downplays the autobiographical elements of the story—this is not a movie about Sedaris. It is, instead, a movie about an intensely unlikable young man whose disdain for his surroundings colors every character in the film. Despite gorgeous cinematography (it was filmed on location in Oregon), C.O.G. is hamstrung by its sour, superior protagonist.
