We Go Way Back is another tale of a twentysomething struggling to get a grip on their life.

First time director Lynn Shelton breaks too many narrative laws for it to work as a feature.

For the first half, you can kid yourself that these witty sidetrips are what the film is about. But then Shelton gets "serious," and it dissolves into arty murk.

[A] diverting but ultimately weightless effort.

For all of the film's preciousness, the pungent notion of having your young-teen self gazing in horrified disappointment at the adult you've failed to become is as fresh a thematic undertow as it is disquieting.

More successful at conjuring atmosphere than at plot, "We Go Way Back" is nicely acted but frustratingly slight.

Depression is the subject of the locally produced We Go Way Back, yet the movie works best as a backstage comedy in the tradition of Waiting for Guffman.
