(ca) wrote: Not only do I not believe that the child painted most of the works shown, I suspect the documentary was at least partially staged. I mean, it has a story arc and a money shot with the mom crying, such a cliche' nowadays. The mom's cynical remark,"Documentary gold!" was very telling to me. This pretty much seemed like a marketing scheme perpetrated by a group of crass yuppie posers.
(au) wrote: The thing about Todd Solondz's "Storytelling" is that you can't simply just watch it as another, random film, because it's not just 'another random film.' You will have needed to have seen Solondz's previous work ("Welcome to the Dollhouse," "Happiness") and grasp the controversy and criticism surrounding him, for "Storytelling" is a meditation on Solondz's sensibilities. Solondz turns his script and lens back on the audience as well as himself. He is questioning both his admirers and his detractors. He is also questioning himself- why he is drawn to this material, why explore such darkness? "Storytelling" is a sort of subtlety brilliant piece of metafiction but it's not all entirely satisfying. These stories are just a tad bit trite, yet they still come with a considerable amount of good- namely the casting (Blair, Goodman, Giamatti, Webber) and Solondz's sharp dialogue and observations. I can't recommend this film to anyone other than fans of Todd Solondz's fascinating and unforgivably complex body of work.

(jp) wrote: A small drama that seems very true to life thanks to the vivid performances by it's two young leads, perceptive writing, and thoughtful direction. Liljeberg plays an unpopular high school loner living in the small Swedish town of Amal, who already aware of being a lesbian, falls head over heels with popular schoolgirl Dahlstrom. As a romantic bond forms tortuously between them, the film tackles effectively both it's coming-of-age and coming-out themes and ends up being a gentle, uplifting reminder or the temporality of teen angst.

(ru) wrote: A bad Rambo knock-off with an unintimitating and a practically unknown lead who tries to look like an action star but ends up with loads of unthreatening hair-styles and facial expressions. The somewhat entertaining action-scenes come too late for anyone to have any interest in the movie's plot or characters. In better hands it could have been an okay action-flick, now it's just a cheap mess.
