The film says so much while saying so little, and it leaves us smiling over its silent wonders.

Photographed with a shabby romanticism.

Very rough, very funny, with sensibilities derived equally from Chaplin, Jim Jarmusch, and the Gang of Four.

Jacobs Jr. gives us a film perched somewhere between the realistic solipsism of Mutual Attraction and the insufferable quirk of Garden State.

Writer-director Azazel Jacob's bittersweet, wistfully minimalist comedy charts a day and a half in the lives of two restless, unhappy men -- both named Rodolfo Cano -- and the woman who finds herself trapped in the mesh of their discontents.

Azazel Jacobss unexpectedly beguiling romantic comedy, The GoodTimesKid, finds poetry in wordless scenes of observation.

Though the film never transcends its own neo-boho quirk, it concludes in a marvelous final shot: a long take set to Gang of Four, grungy and materialist in the Jacobs tradition.

Minimalist day in the life of the angry young leaves us wondering.
