Avis des critiques

The shakiness of Kent’s footage contrasts strikingly with Swanberg’s digital lensing, which itself alternates between tremulous handheld and tripod-assisted compositions that prove his work on Open Fivewas no fluke. Uncle Kent may not knock the viewer out with visual splendor, but it’s still fascinating to look at.

Even aside from the twee handcrafted intertitle cards and toy-piano score, Swanberg’s direction grates: His bland handheld cinematography rarely strives for a compelling composition, and his utilization of herky-jerky flip-cam POV merely hammers home his favored, clichéd notion that technology designed to facilitate human interaction often frustrates or stymies that very communication.

The film stints on Kate’s identity; this is very much a guy film, a work of melancholy bromanticism, and Swanberg, filming with poised and poignant attention, outlines the limits of friendship and the limitations of solitary work as he beholds, with rueful tenderness, a fellow-traveller whose road has long ago diverged. Here, the phrase “Write on my wall” comes off as cold as concrete.
