Monogamy Reviews

Liz Braun
Jam! Movies

This indie film about a young couple with various commitment issues is written with a lot of snap, crackle and pop culture cool.

Monogamy is a tough little movie. And a good one.

The real star of the film, however, is Shapiro who, despite treading on marginally derivative subject matter, demonstrates a solid sense of style and a refreshingly delicate hand with actors.

Shapiro puts his own stamp on voyeur cinema.

Demonstrates what you miss in a relationship when you're lost in your own head, and what might not be there when you come back.

Despite the ominous feel, this is a mystery about losing or gaining lives and unknown detours.

Music supervisor Bernheim and DP Doug Emmett are able to choreograph the action in conjunction with the music to generate fantastic resonance in the scenes.

Monogamy is surprising for how well it tackles themes we thought had been fully examined on film.

With modest resources, some nice digital camerawork and an appealing cast -- the likable Ms. Jones draws you in easily -- Mr. Shapiro keeps you engaged even when his story falters.

The film's final plot twist is easy to spot well before it arrives, but that doesn't detract from its crafty, heartfelt, and surprisingly sound affirmation of getting hitched.

Monogamy asks us to root for lovers who seem disinterested in their own future.

I walked away from the film disappointed, but there are some powerful ideas and performances buried somewhere in here, underneath the performance art itches.

Jones has little to do besides look fed up, and justifiably so.

The conceit is a decent idea for a thriller, if not a terribly original one, but Shapiro loses the rhythm with a plodding story and a pat ending we can see coming a mile away.

Despite the pseudo-vérité style, the convincing improvised dialogue, and its intimations of Blow-Up and The Conversation, Monogamy never quite makes a full commitment.

There are certain filmmakers who should have their Cassavetes card revoked, and on the evidence of "Monogamy,'' Dana Adam Shapiro has joined their ranks.

You may just want to forget about any sort of cinematic monogamy and find another movie to see.

A bit dirty and scattered, the film fails to offer any payoff for its crawling plot and salacious promises.

I reached the outer limits of my endurance level after 25 minutes, but you may make it to an hour.
