Flick Filosopher

It's all arty and jazzy and people sit and stare and turn away from one another instead of talking and it's all about the silences and if you're into that, have at it.

It features plenty of hushed moments that suggest the presence of nuances that never really emerge from its murky tone.

It aimlessly and unsuccessfully attempts to fuse at least three dull plots into one good one.

'Charlotte Sometimes' elicits no more than restlessness.

This and other movies like it seem to say love is complicated and can cause much misery, but that never strikes me as insightful.

[Director] Byler may yet have a great movie in him, but Charlotte Sometimes is only half of one.

Terminally bland, painfully slow and needlessly confusing ... The movie, shot on digital videotape rather than film, is frequently indecipherable.

David Elliott
San Diego Union-Tribune

Capably shot and acted, with a fine feel for loneliness, Eric Byler's film is a mood sonata with little concern about being Asian; it is only PC in the sense of 'painfully coy.'

Charlotte Sometimes is a brilliant movie. It is about irrational, unexplainable life and it seems so real because it does not attempt to filter out the complexity.

Byler reveals his characters in a way that intrigues and even fascinates us, and he never reduces the situation to simple melodrama.

[The] scenes are full of pauses, lingering moments. Every line spoken echoes in the memory, and the acting is good enough to sell it.

Fittingly probing, sensual, mysterious and raw. Byler's exposition is vastly taut, revealing, and firmly perceptive. Charlotte Sometimes radiates with invigorating absorption

If you have any interest in seeing a challenging movie before the next few months of summer silliness, you shouldn't wait to see Charlotte Sometimes.

More interesting than arresting, perhaps, Charlotte Sometimes is an intelligent piece of filmmaking that promises more than it delivers.

Notably cinematic storytelling... The deft shading Byler elicits from his thesps is of a piece with his dramatics and his understated, artful approach to compositions and movement.
