Critic Reviews for Unmade Beds

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (8)

Director Alexis Dos Santos stressed improvisation, and his scenes have a lingering emotional rawness, but the handheld camera work left me feeling as woozy as the characters appear to be.

There's real promise in 'Unmade Beds': the photography is luminous, the direction loose but involving, the acting superb. But ultimately it's a joyless, indulgent film about joyless, indulgent people.

Overly familiar but endearing nonetheless, this coming-of-age indie from Alexis Dos Santos is most likely to appeal to those who recognize themselves in the story's lost heroes.

A lovely, somewhat messy movie about lovely, messy young lives.

September 3, 2009 | Rating: 3.5/5

The conventions of contemporary youth culture and cinema could both use a change of sheets.

Despite some missteps (a parachute metaphor is particularly belabored), the film has an intoxicating quality.

Audience Reviews for Unmade Beds


images + (great) songs + beautiful/stylish photography. although I enjoyed a lot Vera' storyline, the film is not much more than a mtv video clip. unfortunately.
