Dance Party USA Reviews
August 12, 2008
As part of the so called mumblecore movement, this film like Funny Ha Ha is improvised and goes for reality over entertainment, which isn't always a good thing. The characters are interesting enough, though often the conversations seem flat and uninspired. A reflection of life itself but not an interesting one. At 65 minutes it is short and very sweet with a touching ending. The acting is okay, having the awkward relationships means awkward performances are fully acceptable. I'm not a fan of the digital look here, looks too much like a home movie. A nice little film, with some dark themes.
