No Such Thing Directed by Hal Hartley

Critics reviews

No Such Thing is Hartley riffing, at times somewhat aimlessly; satirical scenes featuring Helen Mirren as Beatrice’s opportunistic employer on a tabloid news program, who wants to exploit the Monster for ratings, mostly fizzle. But the film was Hartley’s first serious effort to integrate straightforward emotional sincerity into his deadpan-hipster worldview, and while the result isn’t wholly successful, it’s still frequently hilarious and occasionally quite moving.
