Rotten: Immature ideas amateurishly executed ...
Fresh: The young director Sophia Takal's shrewdly psychological first feature is anchored in the milieu of young creative strivers and the emotional strains that arise from their ambitions.
Fresh: Strong performances and seamless, probing dialogue generate sequences of subtly shifting emotions, filling each scene with a palpable sense of tension and discomfort.
Fresh: The mumblecore dialogue can be annoying, but along with the excellent score, it actually serves this tense haziness well.
Seemed amateur because of the selective focus and lack of character development. There just wasn't enough story here for me to really have something to grasp onto. This says a lot because I am typically really turned on by quiet, ambiguous story lines. The characters were set up to be super cliched, particularly in the Poust and Installation scenes. I suppose if there were any depth to this film whatsoever it was found in the scene where they are attempting to work a patch of soil in order to write a blog post. The characters were incredibly lost and diluted which may say a lot about the 'creative culture' and their inability to connect with reality.
Interesting perspective on the female psyche. The real problem here is that the movie never really fully gels into a full piece. Ultimately, the movie goes no where — but it still manages to capture some great moments.
