Critic Reviews for Momma's Man
Jacobs's low-fi third feature forges unique stylistic territory for the American independent film.
This simple but assured indie drama about the safety of childhood and the necessity of leaving it is particularly affecting because writer-director Azazel Jacobs draws so heavily on his own life.
Awkward pauses and gestures and moments of self-examination give it a rich texture. It's a lovely work, sad and funny. A melancomedy, if you will.
The main character in Momma's Man shuffles through life like he's been poleaxed, and you may feel the same after you watch this slow-motion indie exercise about a grown-up who returns home and can't leave.
It works from a specific place and lets audiences relate to that place, and the people in it, like trusted intimates.
On the surface, it's a straightforward low-budget tale about a grown man who visits his parents and refuses to leave. Yet deeper, darker currents move through Momma's Man, eddying around fears of letting go on both sides of the generational divide.
Audience Reviews for Momma's Man
I didnt start getting into this film until after I found out why the guy was really staying with his parents & then.......Wow
A truly odd movie that annoyed me but was good enough not to hate. I read a lot of good things about this movie but didn't really feel like there was anything to gain from this film.
Boring and pretentious.
