One of those painfully earnest -- and pretentious -- little indies in which a pair of emotional cripples neatly resolve all of their problems within 48 hours of meeting each other.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

A me-me-me spectacle of unexamined grief that allows filmmaker Jennifer Elster to condescend to everyone but herself.

This uneven drama might have been more effective if someone with more on-screen charisma than writer-director Elster had played the main character.

While the film demonstrates some potential on the part of its filmmaker, especially in the acting department, it ultimately lacks the singularity to make it stand out among the glut of similarly themed entries.

This pretentiously titled, zero-budget N.Y. indie airily pulls off what Hollywood mightily strives for -- a believable romantic comedy.

Particles of Truth is a low-budget indie that first seems scattered and off-putting but in time reveals its writer-director's considerable ability and artistic sense.

Transcends its own considerable self-indulgence with sweet, believably tormented performances.

Though many of the risks she takes don't pay off, Elster's film contains a number of stylishly staged set pieces ... that mark her as a young filmmaker worth watching.
