Southland Tales Reviews

Stop Smiling

As in Kelly's previous film, Southland's flaws, and its scope, are magnificently earnest; the guy is in way over his head, but his flailing is extravagant.

As the follow-up to his debut feature, the unexpectedly enduring teen-movie/sci-fi hybrid Donnie Darko, writer-director Richard Kelly has crafted an even more ambitious and far-reaching story

Writer-director Richard Kelly throws a lot at the wall. The problem, if that's what we should call it, is that everything sticks. That's bad news for those who like some narrative clarity, and great news for those who enjoy bonkers wall art.

Unusual and extremely ambitious with an alternate reality that is entirely absorbing; Southland Tales is Richard Kelly's magnum opus that only a small few are able to recognize. Thankfully, those small few are pimps. And pimps don't commit suicide.

The brilliance of Southland Tales is inextricable from its flaws, if indeed they are flaws.

Has the galvanic pulse of a filmmaker trying things out, failing, and trying again

It's the sort of experience you feel embarrassed about even though you had nothing to do with it, because it's not just a mess, it's a pretentious mess

Apollo Guide

This is not just another hodgepodge of a movie that's all noise and excess; writer/ director Richard Kelly has a point here; he has plenty to say.

The type of incoherent, indulgent muddle that can only emerge from the mind of someone who is quite talented.

I'll give it this: Southland Tales is never boring.

entirely misdirected, and the film never gels or even makes sense

Although it's by any reasonable means a flawed film, Southland Tales demands watching, if only for its cinematic achievements.

Sets up such a pretense of intellectualism it fools its audience into believing it's on a plane they can't understand...

A subversive and annihilistic satire on America, lurching from black comedy to farce, from dramatic insight to superficial jokes

When it's not being obstinately stupid, Southland Tales is just difficult to watch.

While Donnie Darko is a fine film regardless of your level of sobriety, Richard Kelly's sophomore effort most definitely is not.

I hope Kelly's career survives Southland Tales, unless, that is, he plans to make more movies like this.

Independent

They've left it late, but writer-director Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko) and his team have gone and scooped The Independent's Worst Film of 2007 award - against stiff competition, too.
