Critic Reviews for A Useful Life
Yet the first 40 minutes of 'A Useful Life' is a deep, rich love letter to cinema and loss, that still resonates in my mind and heart long after its viewing.
A small film with a big heart, Federcio Veiroj's tale of a beleaguered cinematheque and its life-shy film programmer, is a charming ode to the big screen.
Dedicated to cinephiles everywhere, this pocket-vest valentine of a film examines the comforts and limits of movie love.
A Useful Life exists for filmgoers to feel good about being filmgoers; to provide validation for all those romantic notions movie lovers entertain as they sit in the dark for huge chunks of their (our) lives.
A cinephiliac work from a mature vantage point in which movie-love goes hand in hand with an awareness of the fragility of cultural institutions and a faith in romance extending beyond silver screens.
A Useful Life blooms as a study of cinephilia as a means to a sheltered end.
Shot in color but produced in edible, Oreo-toned black and white, A Useful Life transitions seamlessly from indoors to outdoors, from nostalgia to hope.
