Ott has explored his theme - how each person's destiny is propelled by the past but left dangling, isolated in a seemingly formless present - with great subtlety.
[Ott's] distilled the town until it floats somewhere between a hangover and a dream.
This evocative, deceptively rich slice of life has its own voice, and it never fails to be enjoyable for several reasons.
"Littlerock" tells a confident story that knows precisely where it's going.
An ethereal and ephemeral musing on the art and artifice of communication.
A neatly plotted, observational film about being on the outside looking in, and on the inside looking out.
A restrained but visually arresting film about the various ways in which we reach out to one another, often to no avail.
Expectations are subverted, assumptions exploded, and the meaningless nature of words is replaced by the importance of conversation
Writer-director Mike Ott constructs a cutesy, willfully modest and submissive cultural mash-up, and proclaims it profound, or art, merely by virtue of its construction.
A mildly engaging, slight and somewhat breezy slice-of-life drama that's instantly forgettable.
It's always great that movies like this can be made for so little money, but when the results are so dull and derivative, the only real question is "Why bother?"
Mumblecore to the core, Littlerock takes an eternity to get started, but eventually gains in (very) low-key interest.
Director Mike Ott's second narrative feature cannily plays its intentions close to the vest.
