I may be garrisoned-in of late, but I have friends and have been in a least one long term relationship w/ a woman (born, I believe, the same year as Hamish Linklater). Nowhere outside perhaps some of Andrew Bujalski's films do I so absolutely recognize my contemporaries (those I have known, those I have loved) the way I do w/ THE FUTURE. It's fanciful but it can gut you. Time, man. Time is a killer. Bittersweet.
The first part of the movie was promising, with a good vibe and some funny scenes. However, from there on it took the wrong turn into a chaotic art movie attempt. If you feel like watching at two people not showing too much emotion trough out a movie of 90 minutes length, "The Future" is the movie for you. Though, I gave it one star for the cat's charm.
American pretentious stuff trying to be more than hyper intelligent, with two very very unlikable characters (especially the woman character, whose voice doesn't suit the film at all - hyperintelligent nasal voice). Bad bad stuff. And the voice of the cat...no way !!!!
Not by nature 4-star material, but easily lands the high side of a 3. July is so deeply insightful, about people, fears, relationships... And I adore that her kooky off-beatness, brilliantly used for awkward comedy in You Me and Everyone, is here so adeptly revealed to be this delicate, intricate, serious performative language; SO not just schtick. Empathetic & honest. Funny's just a side-effect of being human. 3.75
I've always wondered if we can hear what cats r saying how it would be like what would they say well I guest that's what miranda july thinks it would be couple is cute and weird but that's all p.s.I would give 3 or 4 stars if this was a short movie then it'd be more interesting it's just unnecessarily long
This is a classic relationship based movie, at least to me it is like this. The cat basically symbolizes the relationship. I'd rather commenting on the film with more details but that would be spoiler so I will stop right here. This is a not bad film to watch but I wouldn't watch this film one more time. I recommend you to watch the film if you like analysing this may be the film to see.
