The film takes dramatic material that sounds fairly standard-issue to begin with and proceeds to uncover precious little of genuinely fresh intrigue within it.

Parked putters, but doesn't go anywhere.

"Parked" collapses into sentimentality that not even an actor of Mr. Meaney's dignity and restraint can redeem from mawkishness.

... has its modest and bittersweet charms, but there's not much substance to the script.

Packing two terrific turns and an offbeat spirit, this coming-of-middle-age comedy is an unexpected treat.

Infused with the visceral impact of raw truth connected to the homeless insider point of view looking out at a callous world. But when it comes to the director's outside looking in perspective, there's a second hand sense of little felt or endured.

It veers rather widely through strains of comedy, melodrama and crime-thriller, but it's very well made, consistently engaging and surprisingly moving.

This engaging character study functions best as a two-hander: The male leads build a wholly believable, offbeat co-dependency, while their interactions with others tend toward the more generic.

Strong performances bolster a dodgy scenario in homeless drama.

My nominee for the saddest film of the year.
