Ada film yang jelas sekali punya flaw tapi termaafkan karena sehabis menonton, filmnya memberi kita perasaan senang/bahagia/whatsoever. Ini adalah salah satunya. Funny-weird-awkward-poetic, beautiful and no, so far from pretentious.
Although not as obnoxious as Lena Dunham's "Tiny Furniture", this is another film that falls victim to its own perceived cuteness. It mostly abandons a straightforward story for small vignettes of character reveals and interactions, which would be fine if those interactions were entertaining/interesting. I did laugh during the chat room bit though. All in all, it fell flat for me. I will still check out "The Future".
A lot of people seem to love this film, but I guess, not me. This film just didn't sell it enough for me. It has some good moments and the quirkiness and the unconventionality was a bit exciting but I didn't care much for the characters and it felt more like an odd self-indulgent film. Didn't feel like there was really a point to it.
I'm torn by this film. There are some scenes that turn up the quirk to levels even I feel irritating, but I'm touched by the fragility of the characters and the unexpected way in which July ends the film. I'm certainly intrigued to see "The Future."
Her first narrative feature, this film comes closer than almost all films, maybe just behind Magnolia, in establishing and trying to understand the fine and fragile web of interconnectedness that spreads throughout and within all things.
this one has left me mixed reaction, on one side i absolutely admire and worship the tale of miranda july and john hawkes, that story alone can make a good movie in my opinion, but on the other side the children story is really really a big letdown for me, i just didn't get it, is it humor or a satire or social criticism or some kind of metaphor she tried to deliver, i just found it lame, sorry
Another exploration of alienation - this time though it is thoroughly lovely and uplifting. Perhaps indeed the film is naive for its optimistic portrayal of humanity, but one cannot help but feel incredible warmth and truthfulness in July’s approach and the film convinces without ever being preachy.
