It is more amusing to talk about than to experience.

Audience Reviews for Flirt

Not my favourite Hal Hartley, but interesting.

Nicki Marie

Super Reviewer

Another Hal Hartley gem.

Anthony Valletta

Super Reviewer

Gave it another look for the first time since the VHS days and I have to say that I still dig Hartley's deadpan characters quite a bit, even if it all does feel very much like a production and not anything one would naturally encounter out there in the real world.

Worth a look, examining the death of a relationship from three different perspectives, genders and sexualities.
