Korine has found an evocative subject, but he remains entirely too cavalier in this attitude towards narrative coherence.

In contrast to the grimy and occasionally grotesque Gummo (1997) and Julien Donkey-Boy (1999), this drama has a more gentle, Felliniesque feel.

The film doesn't work, and indeed seems to have no clear idea of what its job is, and yet (sigh) there is the temptation to forgive its trespasses simply because it is utterly, if pointlessly, original.

Korine falls so thoroughly in love with many of his images, including his opening shot, that he stretches them out in hypnotic slow motion.

Like Francis Ford Coppola's Youth Without Youth, the film has overarching problems yet contains diamonds of clarity and inspiration that you won't find in any dozen movies. You'll have to mine for those diamonds, though.

Korine's most lavishly produced pic to date begins as a sweet-tempered tale of social misfits-turned-celebrity impersonators, but falls short of its ambition to say something meaningful about the obsessive nature of celebrity culture.

While it's full of arresting, indelible images, Mr. Lonely remains mostly on the level of abstraction. You get it but you don't always feel it.

In its slightly comical, somewhat mordant, and completely ambient way, Mister Lonely wonders about the perils of idol worship, the way people can hand their entire selves over to a religion, be it Catholicism or celebrity.

Movies tell the same stories over and over, but I know of only one that evokes mourned innocence in just a three-minute slow-motion shot of a Michael Jackson impersonator and a stuffed monkey aboard a clown bike.

[Harmony] Korine hasn't released a feature film in nine years, and his new Mister Lonely is richer and sweeter than anything he's ever made.

Occasionally there is a striking image or a moment of wounded sweetness, but mainly the film provides ample proof that it's possible to be bizarre and boring at the same time.

Mister Lonely has its moments of wonder and beauty, but the film is obscure by design, and meant to appeal to those who favor the alternative canon of directing greats.

After Gummo and Julien Donkey-Boy, the director Harmony Korine evinces a kind of integrity -- he tries never to entertain, and lo, he succeeds.

I will end with the faint praise of Mister Lonely as the least offensive of the works in the Korine canon.

The film is pretty ramshackle, full of obvious group improvisations that fail to spark and an overdose of bathos.

Mister Lonely invites us to escape into fantasy, then seems embarrassed by its own dare.

Too long, not nearly as funny as it hopes, and some plot elements (what's with the sheep?) are extraneous to the improvised mood.

It's never clear what it all means or even if it's supposed to mean anything. Music and silliness get the picture through to its circular ending.
