Korine has an amazing ability to generate dialogue about his own films, and cinema in general. While Mister Lonely struggles to stand in greater context, it undeniable crafts an absorbing world upon itself that rewards anyone who takes the plunge. There are individual scenes in Mister Lonely that are so magnetic, so charged that you almost feel as if the air could ignite with wonder. Harmony has always had a knack for building characters that are nearly tangible on-screen in their eccentricities but also in their unrequited fallibility as humans. In Mister Lonely, Harmony shows us that he can also create equally powerful images; from the first time we see Marilyn to the skydiving nuns. If nothing else, this movie will refuel the cinemaphiles lust for a true auteur in an age of assembly-line “Indie” flicks.
