Uncompelling but moderately engaging.

Variety
Top Critic

The film squeaks in its joints whenever it tries too hard to make a 'generational statement,' and may annoy you with its glibness, but it manages to hold one's interest -- surprisingly at times, given the lightweight characters.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

A laid-back look at youthful rootlessness which never really catches fire.

Time Out
Top Critic

The other actors share an easy, appealing rapport and a flair for dry understatement, which is the film's prevailing tone.

New York Times
Top Critic

It has barely enough wisdom to fill a fortune cookie but it's no pain to sit through.

Top Critic

Every generation spends a while in the navel observatory before learning that it's a shallow, lint-clogged pursuit.

Audience Reviews for Bodies, Rest & Motion

½

Bodies, Rest, and Motion is a nicely imperfect little film. It has these sensual, emotional, mistaken, and serious qualities that are quintessential 90s. Recommended to anyone who is in the mood for an indie drama.

Good indie film.

This movie would probably be less than mediocre if it wasn't for Tim Roth (I know; I'm a bit biased, but he's a great actor!). His characater is quite despicable, but absolutely hilarious. The story is pretty standard, but has a certain charm that keeps you watching. Fans of Roth should watch this, but it's probably not for most people.
