Critic Reviews for The Toe Tactic
Not that a well-developed story arc is the chief aim here, but the screenplay is so quirky and unfocused that only in fleeting moments of emotional directness does the film make a real connection.
The Toe Tactic doesn't amount to much more than its playful title implies, and it's as edgeless as can be, but there's a quiet power to its observations on the complicated schematics of human grief.
Mona's concerns and pleasures - from the regular avoidance of phone calls from her mother to the joy of a fresh hundred dollar bill - are as real and immediate as the floating dogs are fanciful and poetic.
Depending on your tolerance for relentless whimsy and unflagging eccentricity, The Toe Tactic will make you gurgle with delight or groan with exasperation.
I liked this idea better when it was called Me and You and Everyone We Know.
An aggressively whimsical mix of live-action and animation, Emily Hubley's "The Toe Tactic" is a deeply personal fable that's bound to confound (or annoy) anyone outside the filmmaker's circle of intimates.
