"an odd, desperate film, lost in its own audacity, and yet there are passages of surreal beauty and preposterous invention" - Roger Ebert. A film that made me laugh and then realize I probably shouldn't be laughing at what I was laughing at...which made me laugh more. The 4th star is for that alone. Also Herzog and Samantha Morton.
So hard to give it a score. I wanted to give it 5 for the poetry of some scenes, but I don't know. It left me clueless and depressed. I think the fragment that reminded me of Rams is not so unusual to that part of the world. It's fucking hard to really have the guts to be yourself.
Un complejo viaje para el desarrollo de la personalidad que ancla su éxito en la imitación como parámetro único para delinear las características básicas que componen a un individuo feliz. Con planos secuencia ralentizados de manera cautivante Mister Lonely logra retratar el proceso de consolidación de personalidad fallido que exprimentan los individuos en la posmodernidad. (20150107)
There might be miracles in 'Mister Lonely' but there certainly aren't utopia's. A film about the utopia of identity politics, which alas, cannot escape our fundamental humanism. Can idealism rewrite history? Will Chaplin always be a ratbag behind the scenes, Monroe a tragic case, Jackson find his neverland? This is chaotic and unfocussed, but then there's the nuns, transcendental image Korine mastered in 'Breakers'
