Movie Info

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 safely stylized orgy of generic juvenile malaise.

A woozy, quasi-experimental travelogue through twentysomething malaise, anchored by a superb turn from Stella Schnabel, daughter of filmmaker Julian.

Shared Darkness

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.

Mumblecore hell, straight no chaser.

A work that radiates a boozy, Bukowski-esque downward spiral, all alcohol-fueled anger and aimless sadness.

Audience Reviews for You Won't Miss Me

"You Won't Miss Me" starts with Shelly(Stella Schnabel, who also co-wrote) being told by her therapist that she is not mentally ill enough to stay at the hospital anymore. On the other hand, there is the issue of drugs which she consumes with friends before hooking up with one for the night. Otherwise, she goes out for acting auditions while making a film with another friend.

Without much of a story to speak of, "You Won't Miss Me" still manages to stand on its own as a character study of somebody who is not impossible, just difficult. In fact, the only scene I had trouble watching was Shelly smoking in the hotel lobby probably because it was so unnecessary a confrontation it had to be a performance. Admittedly, Shelly finds drugs as a temporary escape from her life, of which the same thing could be said of her acting where she tries on different personas like clothes. In the process, she is exposed to new ideas and people while not being fond of the professional side of the acting process.
