Mr. Nobody Reviews

Zach Hollwedel
Under the Radar

[Writer-director] Van Dormael seems unsure of what exactly it is he's trying to say, and thus Mr. Nobody rambles on for nearly two and a half hours.

Movie Mezzanine

Too clinical to have an emotional impact, not romantic enough to engage a standard audience, and not smart enough for viewers looking for an intellectual experience.

There are times when the film is entirely lucid in the points it wants to get across on love and the various choices we have to make throughout our lives, while at other times it seems lost in its overabundance of possibilities.

The only truly graspable notion the film can be said to put forth is one of increasingly tedious sci-fi-romantic genre busy-ness.

At the 44-minute mark (I checked) of 'Mr. Nobody,' I loudly sighed and asked, "Good God, when the hell is this movie going to START!"

'Mr. Nobody' jumps around in a rather haphazard way, so it seems too chaotic most of the time. It's creative, but quite perplexing.

Both overblown and half-baked, too long and not edited enough, Mr. Nobody describes exactly the kind of audience it will likely get.

The aptly titled Nobody is just a white ball bouncing around the roulette wheel, as likely to land on this number as the next. It's fun to watch "Mr. Nobody" go round and round, but where it lands doesn't really matter to us.

While Mr. Nobody contains some truly moving scenes, it eventually starts to try your concentration when you suspect all the space/time continuum shuffling may never become more than the sum of its parts.

We Got This Covered

While visual excess and occasional thematic bombast softens Mr. Nobody at times, the film nevertheless has poignant, often profound things to say about fate, mortality, consequence and love.

Chris Sawin

Complex, visually stunning, and pleasantly convoluted, this is a film that seems like it can't be confined to one genre and while time flows in one continuous direction Mr. Nobody makes it a point to constantly pedal in the opposite direction.

A thoughtful investigation into the different variations of all our lives: the daydreams, the anxious worst-case scenarios, the futile digressions that went nowhere.

Jaco van Dormael's most ambitious film to date is a mess and a miracle at the same time.

A film that has a beating heart underneath its messy -- though breathtakingly designed -- exterior.

Van Dormael's almost avant-garde modus operandi cements the movie's place as a love-it-or-hate-it proposition.

This is thought provoking without pretentiousness, full of ideas and passion that deserves a wide audience...Giving oneself over to the film is a pleasure that's not soon to be repeated.

Most viewers will have settled into a state of detached admiration. In the end, Mr. Nobody's title is simply too apt.
