Joss Whedon Amerika Syarikat, 2012

T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Much Ado About Nothing

Mumblecore antidote: a fun, smart, and visually pleasing film in which Joss demonstrates all he's good at—creating tension onscreen, compositions with a lot of people in them, balanced exposition of all characters, an intuitive mobility through spaces. This, and the appropriation of Shakespeare's play in lieu of naturalistic dialogue, expose a great part of contemporary indie films for how boring their style is.
