Critic Reviews for Downtown: A Street Tale
As Downtown plods toward its Christmas Eve-set climax, the film's tendency to OD on melodrama detracts from its grittier moments.
Earnest intentions can't begin to save this clumsy cautionary tale about teens and twentysomethings trying to survive on the mean streets of Manhattan.
A hackneyed melodrama partly redeemed by a cast convinced that it's performing Tennessee Williams.
[Director] Zielinski's attempts at serving up grunge and grittiness largely fall flat. Scenes of sex and drug use are typically accompanied by a swooning and intrusive soundtrack.
We're asked to invest in too many characters; on the other hand, aside from Bujold, there's no one you want or need to know more about.
Many actors have written far worse debut scripts, and except for one shot...it all comes off grungy and sad and cold-as-concrete unromanticized.
