You can't build a movie around lingering, soulful shots of the No. 1 train zooming up and down the West Side.

An all-too-familiar wallow in urban woe and artfully photographed isolation.

...overall, his [Alfredo De Villa's] latest flick is dramatically tepid.

Adrift is a small film with great humanity and deserves a broader audience than it's likely to get.

A delicate piece with good performances and an intriguing enough setup, the drama ultimately doesn't go anywhere definite or distinctive enough to leave a lasting impression.

The film's most effective moments are its quietest.

Better directed than written, de Villa's meditation on loss, loneliness, and alientaion in urban New York is downbeat, slow, studied, and a bit pretentious, but it's nicely acted by the entire cast, particularly Victor Rasuk and Dominic Chianese.

Throw a rock into any year's Sundance guide and you're guaranteed to hit at least two or three multi-pronged grave and oh-so-earnest weep-dramas like this one.
