Errol (Nicholas Urda) and Ellis (Andres Montejo) have chosen Noel Rose (Aidan Bristow) as the topic for their next documentary. Noel has killed two people, gone to prison for it but has been released after nine years for good behaviour - and too late they find out Noel has never been found out, gone to prison and released at all, only the killing part is true. And he has killed quite a few people since. But he's about to quit and is happy to has this step of his documented. That said, Noel's still a ticking timebomb, as he suffers from outbursts of rage, tends to violence, and seems to be unable to escape his past. And at first, our documentarians are actually quite a bit scared of the guy, and when they witness his first violent outburst, they make a quick getaway. But the more they get to know him, and get to know his soft-spoken, cultivated and charming side, the more they start to trust and even like him. Eventually, Noel learns from his ex (Marisa Lowe) that he has a daughter, Gabriella (Raelynn Zofia Stueber), and learns that he could get full custody of her as his ex has other plans anyways, and that really changes his outlook on things - he even starts to go into therapy. But the rage beneath the surface remains, and Errol and Ellis, even if they have by now become his friends, eventually start to egg him on a bit to make their documentary more exciting - something that can only end in chaos ...

 

Sure, by 2019, the found footage/mockumentary genre has long had its best days, with too many cheap carbon copies of its classics bringing it to an early grave - but then along comes Strawberry Flavored Plastic, and it makes the genre look fresh again. Basically that's because the film features an actual narrative structure, interesting character arcs ... and actually just interesting characters who are all in the grey between good and evil, with Noel being a monster trying to better himself (failing maybe, but trying very hard all the same), and the documentarians who soon enough lose their fly-in-the-wall status and become accessories to Noel's crimes. Now add to that a solid cast, several well set up suspense scenes (something the genre usually lacks), and aesthetics relying on more than just shaky camerawork, and you've got yourself a piece of rather cool genre entertainment.
