Even the gamest viewers will become frustrated if they're not let in on the joke.

It's interesting, and November does give us something to chew on. But a puzzle with no payoff isn't worth the effort.

It's divided into three sections: Denial, Despair and Acceptance. They may as well be called Confoundment, Confusion and Apathy.

The problem lies with the story these filmmakers choose to tell.

The film proves that Harrison's insufferable Groove was no fluke.

The lack of proper resolution to the story is more vexing than intriguing.

a bit like a performance art piece with nothing much to say

More a psychology experiment than a film.

Wears its solemnity like a cloak, but I for one am calling emperor's new clothes.

For all its good intentions in exploring the grace of death, November never creates a life outside of its all-too-obvious inspirations

November has the pretensions of an art-house indie trying to one-up a Hollywood trend - in this case, the Sixth Sense-style twist ending that belies everything that has gone before.

There's no real payoff -- artistically or emotionally -- in Gregory Harrison's gimmicky and tedious psychological thriller November, shot on ugly digital video.

Beware serious movies starring former sitcom stars. Beware thrillers about photographers. Bewares movies set in convenience stores.

It's supposed to look stylish, a film noir... but a psychological thriller cannot live by mood and atmosphere alone.

Telegraphs its unsatisfying payoff for miles, has no fun getting there, but at least boasts a running time of 73 minutes, padded by a hilariously slow credit crawl.

A profoundly irritating and meaningless experience... can we please stop making this same movie over and over again, already?

It felt like (November) asked me to drive to a designated location, then kept re-drawing my map.

Whatever we think one minute is utterly meaningless, without connection, the next.

Maybe November wanted to be the missing link between more conventional art-house films and the hallucinogenic dreams of David Lynch. It fails.
