"A Love Affair of Sorts" answers the question of whether you can make a feature film with a Flip camera and leaves open the question of whether you can make a good one.

Epic navel-gazing and interminably low-stakes visual artistry.

You show me your camera, and I'll show you mine. That sums up the low-budget indie "A Love Affair of Sorts."

Endlessly fascinated by the idea that some people are endlessly fascinated with themselves? David Guy Levy has made a movie perfectly suited to you.

A physically taxing movie, jiggling and off-center and filled with dizzying whip pans.

An amateurish and tedious romantic drama about two irritating people and two flip cameras.

Billed as the first feature film to be shot on a flip camera, A Love Affair of Sorts looks it.
