Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: What does it add up to? Um ... I have no idea and don't really care.
Rotten: A slapped-together sub-mumblecore exercise that at times suggests a feature-length expansion of 2010′s "Sad Keanu" meme
Rotten: Neither the film, nor the film within the film, hold our attention. Bummer, Keanu.
Rotten: Meandering and affected, this tedious character study is as aimless as the lives it depicts.
Few films lately have hung on to me so tightly the next day as this one did. It slowly oozes in, and left me with a haunting feeling, a feeling of a past life I no longer wanted to live. Made me want to move forward and really do something and not sit and stew about all that is wrong, unfair. This a truly unique movie. One not all will appreciate. It taps into the blandness we all feel when feeling hopeless, in life, in our jobs, not striving for something more. We can sit around, do nothing and talk about it or we can take action. Mann captures wonderfully realistic mundane moments that we've all experienced in one way or another before, but no one has been brave enough to make a movie about them––until now. Those days we take for granted, and overwhelm the majority of our lives, until we can't take it anymore and make a positive change.
This movie is about humbleness
Watch this movie to see how a man can be humble and reveal the light by his humbleness in the middle of the darkest dark. The most heart opening part of this movie is when a girls defines what she like in men the most. Apparently it's not a power or outlook, but simple humbleness. The movie is so deeply touching, it's impossible to describe. Must watch!
What is friends? That's really the central thesis of this tale about three lost souls swimming in a fishbowl year after year. Alas, this movie could also be about the inner workings of a call girl organization and their meandering, hopeless pawns in the game of sexual chess. Or it could be about petty theft. Either way, this movie is outstanding in its achievement in the field of excellence because the viewer chooses what they can get out of the movie rather than the director feeding you a linear, mindless story. If you have a limited imagination, you will have a narrow scope as to what you can decipher from this movie. That being said, a lego block is merely a piece of plastic to someone who cannot see what will become of it. So, what is friends? A good movie.
