Chronic Town (2008)
Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
From Michael Kamsky's smart, sardonic screenplay, first-time director Tom Hines musters exactly the kind of askew sensibility and broad-mindedness that takes seemingly dark subject matter and cracks it open without ever selling his characters short. JR Bourne takes a character generally mired in a depressive funk and buries it behind a smart-ass demeanor. These characters are people trying to deal with their messy lives, but the film has an honest acceptance of those limitations. These aren't problems with solutions-the best Truman can hope for is a better way of coping. --© Sundance Film Festivalmore
