  2. Samuel Donath's rating of the film The Intervention

    Wants to be Cassavetes. Tires to be Cassavetes, but it is not even close. Cassavetes was not sloppy. Gets interesting towards the end, but leaves is wondering more about the "friends" involved rather than that main character.

  3. Minhal Baig's rating of the film The Intervention

    With the aesthetic of Cassavetes, the Duplass Brothers' short film packs a punch. What starts out as seemingly mundane turns into the serious; a group of well-intentioned friends attempt to help their friend Steve come out of the closet, but their methods are less than ideal.

  4. OcioActivo's rating of the film The Intervention

    Great discovery for those who follow the Duplass Bros. these days. The build-up, subtle insights, and Altman-like dialogue makes this a worthy short flick. Punchy ending and mayhaps emblematic of the times?

  5. ajdehany's rating of the film The Intervention

    When does an intervention turn into a form of abuse? The motivations of the friends may be shady, perhaps well-intentioned but ill-conceived, giving the film a deep ambivalence.

  6. David R Williams's rating of the film The Intervention

    I hate nothing worse than whining urban characters bemoaning their fate in the universe. I only gave this 2 stars because I did think the performances were decent and the cinematography of interest.

  7. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film The Intervention

    With an aesthetic surely inspired by the work of Cassavetes, the story unfolds and shifts nicely from the allegedly friendly to the downright manipulative making the denial and acceptance come more off like an exercise in mind fucking.

  8. Superfrog's rating of the film The Intervention

  9. Charlie's rating of the film The Intervention

    It's a good story but the performances weren't that good. As for the story, what was the point of doing this? The "friends" are not friendly at all and nobody should be forced to get out of the closet. It's something that they must do by themselves when ready. A friend should encourage another friend to feel better, a friend should help. But this didn't seem to help at all. Watching this was quite stressing for me.

  10. Morris Bros.'s rating of the film The Intervention

    The way Mark presses Steve, and purposely brings up instances to strong-arm Steve -- not into BEING, but into admittance, comes off hardly 'friendly' let alone persuasive. Even from the start. It's all rather unpleasant. And the performances aren't topnotch, either. 2.4

  11. mpho3's rating of the film The Intervention

    duplass needs an intervention to stop his obsession with the worst types of people

  12. dudewiththeface's rating of the film The Intervention

    Starts light-hearted and turns darker quickly, all with a nice flow. The performances feel like your in a circle of what seems to be friends, probably because they all really were, but it lends itself nicely to the progression of the simple to understand but complex issue in the story. It definitely did remind me of watching Cassevettes.

  13. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film The Intervention

    "Will someone fucking tell me what happened with Ron?!"

  17. MichaelCurtis's rating of the film The Intervention

    how this film ever took best short is beyond me. bad lighting, horrendous camera work, and performances that don't ring true. i guess that makes it brilliant.

  18. Mirkle's rating of the film The Intervention

    This is supposed to be funny? It's a great little film, well acted, interestingly shot, and ... really rather unpleasant.
