3 Backyards Reviews
the music is odd but all the actors are sensational in each of their story arcs
some events are life-changing, some are scary, some are more unfulfilling
NOTE TO THE WRITER, this theme has been done to death and them some. Why not attempt something unique next time, and angst thrives in the "city" too.
The thing I like most about "3 Backyards" are its moments of silence that not only allow the actors to take control but also say more than any of the dialogue does. What the movie comes tantalizingly close to depicting is the emptiness of suburban lives, as the distance between people only allows them to watch each other, not connect.(There is one moment of dislocation that is probably more accidental than anything else.) However, none of that is as interesting as it sounds here, as the movie lacks anything in the way of well-defined characters.
