This movie is the proof that the world is becoming a sick and dumb place
The Worst Film Ever
This is one of the few movies I've ever seen where the whole audience broke into spontaneous, loud applause a third of the way in.
It’s fine. It's literally the definition of a fine movie. You’ve seen it before, you know every beat and outcome before the characters even do. Only question is how much escapism you’re looking for.
Hands down this is the worst film I saw at Tribeca this year and to be honest it's the worst film I've seen at any film festival in the last 5 years. As a film historian and film buff I make it a point to try and see at least one film a day and what struck me about this one is how monotonous and non consequential it was. Every character, line of dialogue and sequence in the film was so homogenous it felt like like I was sedated and being forced to watch paint dry in a straight jacket. I don't care how many of the 50 producers on this movie (like VJ-45463) give it a 9/10 rating and justify it's existence for an "intelligent" audience (I have a PhD in Political Economy and Government from Harvard thank you very much); this movie is less watchable than a dog eating it's own excrement only to regurgitate it and devour it once again; repeating the cycle endlessly! Clearly hollywood producers will do anything to sell their movies including redefine intelligence (oh and Ms. Forrest was divorced after this film was shot -- perhaps Mr. Mendelsohn astrally projected himself into the future and read my review!).
Great little movie, with a good performance of Jamie Dornan and Jemina Kirke.
I have followed the creative journey of Emma Forrest for decades, whether her books; articles; interviews; or current screenplay. Universal and personal themes expand vigorously throughout her oeuvre. Ms. Forrest's self-referential view of the human condition touches every raw and refined emotion manifested by women and men alike. If you have read her books, as a lagniappe, you will recognize the symbolisms characterized by various actors in the movie "Untogether," which I saw recently at The Tribeca Film Festival.It took many years to complete the "Untogether" project, and it was worth the wait.
Far from boring! I saw this movie at the Tribeca Festival too, where it was warmly received by the audience. It's a great ensemble piece by a starry cast, the two Kirke sisters, Jamie Dornan, Ben Mendelsohn (who used to be married to Emma Forrest), Billy Crystal, Alice Eve, plus a bonus cameo from Scott Caan. The movie had some great one-liners and although it's probably not one for the multiplexes it's one for an intelligent audience. A remarkable directorial debut from a very talented writer.
