Admittedly the premise of Flick is immature, however, I wanted to explore deeper themes of anxiety and isolation using a booger as the vehicle. Having an anxiety disorder, I know what it's like to get stuck in a hellish loop of obsessive thinking. I wanted to tell this story as a way of exorcising that feeling, but also have it serve as a cautionary tale against self-destructive habits.
But at the end of the day, it's a movie about a guy trying to flick a booger off his finger, so take it as you will.
