This film from David Mackenzie is such a curiously inert experience that never satisfies as a romance, a sci-fi drama or as a social parable.

The most depressing film in recent memory might be this low-budget apocalyptic Irish romance.

Each deprivation is preceded by a flurry of emotion that leads to the film's most vivid sequences.

The problem with Perfect Sense is its inability to be effective as either a character-based love story or something larger and more bold.

There is a low key element to this narrative much like what CHILDREN OF MEN offered, however this is not nearly as successful as Alfonso Cuarón's brilliant feature.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

A deeply spiritual love story that challenges us to be fully alive to the report of our senses and to live in the present moment which will never appear again.

Ultimately too silly to truly captivate.

A strong candidate for the most nauseating film of the year, in every sense.

People around the world progressively lose their senses of smell, taste, hearing and, finally, sight. Too bad the filmmakers never seem to have had a sense of humor in the first place.

Visually glassy and smooth, Perfect Sense values the dynamic mood of each scene without being overly stylized.

A solemn sci-fi parable set in present-day Glasgow, whose deepening sense of foreboding is sustained by the enigmatic, pseudo-biblical reflections of an unseen narrator.

It's difficult to impart feelings of profound sadness with an image of Ewan McGregor shoving a stick of butter in his mouth.

Sadly, even aficionados of the Cinema of Extinction may make "Perfect Sense" an Omega choice.

The gimmick isn't enough to sustain drama because it doesn't provide jeopardy..Even as humanity is slowly stripped of its senses, nothing seems to be particularly at stake.

In staying together as their world evaporates into darkness and silence, they are displaying what anyone in love would recognize as quiet heroism - and perfect sense.

If you crave action, dialogue, explanations, character revelations and clear plot resolutions, Perfect Sense never lives up to its title.
