Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Rarely has a movie so humorously illustrated the meaning of "frenemy."
Fresh: "Fort Tilden" is cringe-worthy but true. Maybe that's why it's so uncomfortable to watch.
Fresh: Fort Tilden, the debut feature co-written and directed by Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers, showcases a satirical voice so dyspeptic it's almost endearing.
Fresh: Allie and Harper are basically unlikable, but played with a light touch and just enough distance from their own unthinking cruelty to remain funny.
Let’s go to the beach...
Just as I was becoming truly annoyed by this movie, it turn an unexpected turn.
As these two cloyingly vacant and cruel losers find their way into The Flatbush area of NYC, things take a ever-so-slight twist. By the time they actually reaching the "general" area of destination it seems like they are becoming as tired of each other as I was of them.
I'm fairly certain that this was Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers' intent.
The final third of the movie finally takes these self-entitled dim-wits full circle. It is doubtful that these two characters will ever come to terms with who and what they are, but they do get more than either knows how to deal.
Both Bridey Elliott and Clare McNulty give spot-on performances. McNulty is actually quite brilliant. Bliss/Rogers' owe what works about this movie largely to these two actors.
Hopeless, helpless and hilarious.
Can't wait to actually watch it!
I haven't even seen it yet and it's already the best movie I've seen since Beaches!
