This dreary independent drama is essentially an art-world soap opera, but without the melodramatic verve that makes some soap operas interesting.
What we have here is a household ripe with seduction, lust, betrayal and repression, all kept below the surface by increasingly strained good manners.
...a self-important nightmare ... shallow script and boring situations. Perhaps that is the simplest way to sum up the film, boring. Offensively boring.
The direction is decent, and the film is handsome. But it's finally frustrating, enigmatic in a way that suggests emptiness more than mystery.
You feel the characters' pangs as they spin out of control, and you are reminded of how easy it is for a careless sexual adventurer to destroy relationships and families on a whim, without even fully realizing it.
Full of humor and humanity, Nobody Walks is an emotionally complex, acutely observed and sensual film and one of the best at Sundance this year.
A bushel full of familiar indie-film devices held together by honest writing and charming performers.
A movie made by women about men who misunderstand sexual signals, behaving badly, and the women who are stuck dealing with their bruised egos.
Nobody does much of anything else, either, and that's the problem in this meandering and pretentious low-budget comedy.
A defiance of expectations and exploration of sexual politics that challenges convention--both in art and in real life.
A few scenes hint at the potential of the piece, while the rest of the effort seems more interested in curling up for a nap.
