I love this kind of American indies. Young people (often loners?) in big cities drifting around and doing things slightly unordinary to spice up their day. Made me a little more excited about my own situation in life.
A pretentious, hipster celebration of klepto-mumblecore pseudo-dérives that was originally intended as a short film to promote Kate Spade Handbags (no, really). I did feel cheated and robbed and that was not very pleasant.
A girl wanders on the streets conning people, shoplifting, picking pockets and even stealing a car's keys. Director Safdie co-stars as a close friend of the protagonist in this nouvelle vagu-ish, plotless vagrant of a movie. The natural liveliness of (co-writer) Hendricks partially makes up for the film's lack of motive.
Fraţii Safdie plonjează la orașul brut denumit New York, care este plin de energie lipicioasă și tumultuoasă, cu stringenţa ca ostaș june cufundând în câmp însângerat de luptă și inocenţă ca zână canarisind prin copaci congestionați voios. Acesta este o scrisoare de dragoste la haosul draguț. // サフディ兄弟は血塗られた戦場へと赴く若い兵士のような切迫感と、妖精が木々の合間を駆け抜けるような無邪気さと共に、猥雑な活気に満ちる生のNYへと飛びこんでいく。この映画は愛おしき混沌へのラブレターだ。
