Movie Info

Ten disparate New Yorkers are connected by a summer heat wave and a series of steamy sexual encounters in 30 Beats, featuring an ensemble cast that includes Lee Pace, Condola Rashad, Justin Kirk, Thomas Sadoski, and Jennifer Tilly. Written, produced and directed by Alexis Lloyd, the film is a light-hearted exploration of seduction, spontaneity and self-discovery that's as sultry and vibrant as the city in which it's set. -- (C) Official Site

This umpteenth variation on Schnitzler's classic play La Ronde fails to arouse.

In "30 Beats," the conversational foreplay is hopelessly flaccid.

Top Critic

Despite the presence of such actors as Lee Pace, Jennifer Tilly, Justin Kirk, Thomas Sadoski and Paz de la Huerta, there is no character insight allowed by the bumper-car storytelling.

That's all that happens: drift from one unrealized, uninteresting character to another.

"30 Beats" goes on to a meandering orgasm of multiple, less-than-dangerous liaisons meant to titillate, fascinate and illuminate. But once the sweat dries, it irritates.

This wisp of a movie, inspired by Arthur Schnitzler's play "La Ronde," offers only hints of the complicated personalities behind the characters' sleek, well-toned surfaces.

Audience Reviews for 30 Beats

½

I watched the movie, rated it and went to RT to paste my review from Words on my computer and I was shocked to see 5% on the ratings and mostly bad words for this, if you ask me, very smooth viewing! This social study/romance film, written and directed by Alexis Lloyd was delightful to watch, especially that the stories were excellently interwoven to give you the understanding of the journey the characters were on. Very fresh casting of familiar but somehow not too popular faces, included Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Jason Day, Vahina Giocante, Paz de la Huerta ("Enter the Void") and Lee Pace ("The Fall") and all of them preformed very well. Ten characters displayed different views and understandings of love and desire, each one caught beyond his or her control in a chain reaction of seduction, impulses and self-discovery. And this is not a typical romantic comedy you are used to these days - there is no wonder people reacted negatively! From the first moment starts rolling like avalanche... and never stops...
