A minor but quirkily charming comedy about alientaion, love, and folly that reflects the zeitgeist in terms of AIDS and modern technology.
Salwen has captured and properly identified a very particular modern American species. His emergence as a filmmaker is a true event.
At only 80 minutes, it doesn't overstay its welcome, but slight though it may be, it knows how to create constant smiles.
It's hard to care about a movie story in which the characters never meet one another or really care about one another.
Might have been more effective if the writer/director had taken the time to create characters imbued with more than token traces of humanity.
After a while, besides enjoying the stories as such, we begin to enjoy the film's trickiness, almost all on the phone, as a sort of high-wire act.
Who'd have thought a movie about people talking on the phone could be so fun?
Insightful comedy about keeping in touch in the modern world.
Denise Calls Up is, if limited, a surprising success.
The conceit of having everyone talk together almost exclusively by cell phone wears out its welcome by the halfway mark.
The film is never really funny-ha-ha, but it never bores the viewer at all thanks to Hal Salwen's direction.
An alert, funny antisocial comedy.
