The Hangover Part III
RT on DVD & Blu-Ray
As I Lay Dying
The film avoids most of its genre's pratfalls, though it also shows little interest in transcending them.
| Original Score: 2/4
Even though 'Yelling to the Sky' tumbles, Victoria Mahoney shows great promise as a director.
| Original Score: C
Though the film and its director undoubtedly have a great deal of heart and passion, too many scenes feel like actors' workshop exercises.
Little more than a résumé film for all involved, it certainly feels more Park City than Bushwick.
Strong on texture but taxingly light on narrative.
Mahoney barely explains her characters' circumstances, which makes the movie obliquely intriguing. But whenever the story comes into focus, it's revealed as fairly conventional.
"Yelling" is a prosaic look at a hard life. Like Sweetness, the movie finds its way by instinct.
| Original Score: 3/5
Not much happens in story terms, but the film swirls with emotions that make it by turns grim and amusing, heavy and light, obvious and vague.
This is grim, bleak material that at times is monotonous, but its woe feels authentic.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Yelling to the Sky drips with a strange but sometimes moving nostalgia for environs its characters clearly want to escape.
