(au) wrote: This is a beautiful film about the human spirit. It is painful to see how people, especially children, treat those who are older. However, James Cromwell and Genevieve Bujold are exceptional actors who bring validity to their characters.

(ca) wrote: I was not expecting this movie to be as dumb as it was. None of the plot or character motivations make sense to the point I would actually classify this as a so-bad-it's-good movie.
(ag) wrote: Linklater is really hit or miss for me. I really like Dazed and Confused, Before Sunrise, and Boyhood. I hated Waking Life, and I didn't much enjoy this film.Linklater is really about a lot of philosophical conversation - or just interesting conversation such as talking about a Madonna pap smear - and he does little interesting technically. One of the few shots in this film which I found to be great was a long take in which the camera tracks back from the scene of a crime - an old lady being hit by a car - and then pans left to transition to the next character in his home. Sadly this is the repetition in the film that makes it feel so monotonous. It transitions between "episodes" by introducing characters at the end of each episode that pretty much just pass by. And I don't believe we come back to any characters in the film once their "episode" is done.I do enjoy the conversations in the film, I really do, but they don't really make up for the fact that this film has pretty terrible structure. While structure isn't necessary in a film, it can act as a guide for a good story. Characterization might help as well, rather than just conversations about life and such. Linklater seems more fit to write essays than to make films with movies such as this and Waking Life.If you want to get into deep thought this is a good film for you to watch, but if you want entertainment and story, look elsewhere.
(de) wrote: As silly as a wheel. I actually couldn't help but laugh during the scene in the car with Brad Dourif, Faye Dunaway, and Rene Auberjonois all delivering the most ridiculous performances of their career, in the most ridiculous costumes they've ever worn. And this is supposed to be a contemporary thriller. Props to Tommy Lee Jones, who manages to nail the (superfluous) final monologue, and of course The Kersh, who manages a few stylish moments in a largely daft film (in particular, love that shot from the interior of a funeral house that opens up to a lush exterior, only for a pack of journalists to come charging down the frame). Also, why is Raul Julia billed as "R.J."?

(de) wrote: So I was told over and over again from countless friends to watch this movie. I've been told I would love it and that it was so me. Looks as though they were correct in their assumptions because it was such a joy. I love the construction and deconstruction of the manic pixie dream girl. Very much about modern feminism. I feel I can connect to so many different facets of this film and it's characters.
