The Brass Teapot Reviews

Mark Zhuravsky

Leads Michael Angarano and especially firecracker Juno Temple are the reason to keep watching, but even they cannot breathe life into a compelling concept stretched too thin.

Slant Magazine

Imbued with a buoyant mysticism, the film is more gag-friendly than idea-based, primarily relying on the considerable charm of its leads to ground its supernatural conceit.

The film feels like it's over long before the credits roll-or perhaps that's just wishful thinking.

Ms. Mosley, who directed from a screenplay by Tim Macy, struggles to fill her debut feature with a slender notion, but the premise defeats her, even if the story operates at the outset on the pleasure principle.

The Brass Teapot tries to force a moralistic, Twilight Zone-ish plot into an indie comedy, a task that proves impossible for first-time feature director Ramaa Mosley.

Screen International

This dark comedy makes a few smart observations about the lengths people will go to snag the American Dream, but its satiric edge gets dulled rather quickly.

The screenplay falters, introducing ridiculous villains and featuring thorough lapses in logic in a blur of strained drama.

Even The Twilight Zone would have struggled with the cutesy conceit of The Brass Teapot ...

Missing numerous layers of sickness, fearful of pushing a plot of pain on its audience, forcing them to study the complexity of unsavory desires with unlikable characters.

Temple and Angarano, entertaining enough, never quite sell the idea that this goodhearted couple would be so easily transformed by greed.

...there does reach a point wherein Mosley's efforts at prolonging the running time results in elements of desperate nature...

Without a human dimension to ground its construct, "The Brass Teapot" ultimately feels like an interminably stretched-out skit rather than a storybook lesson stained with blood and hurt.

This oddball dark comedy might have made an amusing short film, but its one-note concept wears thin at feature length.

If you happened upon "The Brass Teapot" on TV and it broke for a commercial, you'd probably change the channel.

Far from the offbeat satire on the American dream gone sour it aims to be, The Brass Teapot is more like a dark flirtation with the American nightmare that backfires.

The story is set up and unfolds in a very subtle, nuanced manner that enriches each reveal.

Heavy-handed, but you have to love that message -- "Greed causes physical harm" -- and the ways Juno Temple and Angarano sell it.
