Mister Lonely Reviews

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic IconTop Critic

The film doesn't work, and indeed seems to have no clear idea of what its job is, and yet (sigh) there is the temptation to forgive its trespasses simply because it is utterly, if pointlessly, original.

The film, more ant farm than movie, seems like a lazy effort from a talent who has lost his edge.

Marlow Stern
Manhattan Movie Magazine

despite the film's odd, whimsical tone, solid performances, and sartorial splendor, Mister Lonely runs out of steam and, as a commentary on our celebrity-obsessed culture, doesn't have a whole lot to say

| Original Score: 3/5

Possibly the worst movie this year... or at least we can hope so.

Once the novelty of all the celebrity impersonations wears off, the film never gives you much of a reason to care about the predicaments of its cardboard characters.

Korine has found an evocative subject, but he remains entirely too cavalier in this attitude towards narrative coherence.

Fails to achieve any kind of cumulative meaning outside of Korine's private amusement.

Occasionally there is a striking image or a moment of wounded sweetness, but mainly the film provides ample proof that it's possible to be bizarre and boring at the same time.

Think of it as a cinema-of-the-infantile and you'll be better able to stomach the utter boredom that goes along with Korine's prepubescent logic.

Korine's strengths lie in crafting individual scenes, not in shaping a coherent whole.

Mister Lonely is an exercise in transformation, both on and off the screen. Korine has shed his Dogme 95 skin but what kind of filmmaker emerges is not exactly clear.

Eight years before another Harmony Korine film is not a bad prospect.

Korine may have an original voice and eye but can't really think of anything interesting to do with them.

Too long, not nearly as funny as it hopes, and some plot elements (what's with the sheep?) are extraneous to the improvised mood.

Like Francis Ford Coppola's Youth Without Youth, the film has overarching problems yet contains diamonds of clarity and inspiration that you won't find in any dozen movies. You'll have to mine for those diamonds, though.

It's never clear what it all means or even if it's supposed to mean anything. Music and silliness get the picture through to its circular ending.

It's an endearing enough idea but the film's dark side undermines the charming set-up.

While it's full of arresting, indelible images, Mr. Lonely remains mostly on the level of abstraction. You get it but you don't always feel it.
