This movie was, for the most part, underwhelming, but the scene with Robin Wright Penn and Jason Isaacs in the grocery store absolutely haunts me. That, as well as Glen Close/Dakota Fanning's scene, was beautifully done.
9 short films. Interesting movie. But once again, you'll love some of them so much you wish there will be a feature on it. And others you don't care so much. Very interesting to watch. The one with Robin Wright is outstanding.
Garcia wants us to see what we are given, to think about it, ponder how our own lives may or may not be similar but what he relies on, our appreciation for a second at a time with these characters is the very thing that keeps us at a distance and effectively prevents us from caring enough. There are memorable moments, some tantalizing dialog but overall the film fails where Garcia's first film soared.
