A kaleidoscopic film portrait of Shelly Brown, a twenty-three-year-old alienated urban misfit going through a hard time. Starring Stella Schnabel, featuring Rene Ricard and introducing other notable New York personalities, the film gives pathos to the frenzy of the youthful desire for acceptance.
Shot in a variety of styles and formats, YOU WON'T MISS ME mixes non-actors with professionals, verité with staging, order with abstraction, to paint an evocative picture of a contemporary

The movie achieves its own nervy sensitivity about youthful urban despair.
Never amounts to anything more than a rambling, studenty exercise in undergraduate cinema vérité.
For all its many irritations, You Wont Miss Me has undeniable punch, a frayed energy that feels janglingly unstable.
[You Wont Miss Me] leads off with a scene that lets you know right away that you're in the good hands of a young director sensitive to the idiosyncratic details that breathe life into a movie.
Russo-Young has elevated style so far above content that she has lost the plot
A woozy, quasi-experimental travelogue through twentysomething malaise, anchored by a superb turn from Stella Schnabel, daughter of filmmaker Julian.
A poignant, true-to-life portrait of an emotionally scarred, lonely and depressed soul struggling to grow up in this often cold, alienating world. Stella Schnabel delivers a raw, captivating performance.
The pointlessness of it all is the point, which combines the strengths and flaws of the movie into a provocative, challenging contradiction-just like Shelly herself.
