Critic Reviews for Maze
In the end, you just feel good about these people, and that's a nice sensation these days.
[A] tangled, tortured mess.
The best kind of independent filmmaking to shame the somnolent mainstream.
Morrow illuminates all the challenges facing the individual coping with Tourette syndrome while showing that Lyle is much more than the sum of his afflictions.
Shows promise as a first feature ... but overall it feels a little too safe, a little too careful.
Audience Reviews for Maze
**1/2 (out of four) A well-intentioned and pridictable indie about an artist (Rob Morrow) who has Tourette's Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He struggles to contol his outbursts and appear normal to others, but when his doctor leaves for Africa for several months, the artist panics. He turns to the doctor's girlfriend (Laura Linney) for help. He soon falls in love with her. The performances are great. It's hard to go wrong with Laura Linney around. Written and directed by Rob Morrow, the film almost succeeds, but it just doesnit go anywhere.
Morrow and Linney are gifted, extremely likable actors, and the movie has some ingratiating moments and a seductive soundtrack. But there's a by-the-numbers inevitability to every scene, and it never clicks into place to be anything special.
Fantastic movie. Okay, so it's a romance, but it's good! I certainly didn't expect the twist. Rated R for nudity, but the male lead is an artist.
