Jason's rating of the film 20th Century Women

20TH CENTURY WOMEN seems to want to sustainedly tap the profound. It has some things to say about life. Life in a particular place and time w/ specific intergenerational dynamics relevant thereto. Not altogether facile. However, in its striving, the film also liberally spatters itself w/ schmaltz. And I cannot remember any recent movie that takes itself so seriously feeling so consummately like packaged product.
