News & Interviews for Adrift in Manhattan
Critic Reviews for Adrift in Manhattan
You can't build a movie around lingering, soulful shots of the No. 1 train zooming up and down the West Side.
An all-too-familiar wallow in urban woe and artfully photographed isolation.
...overall, his [Alfredo De Villa's] latest flick is dramatically tepid.
Adrift is a small film with great humanity and deserves a broader audience than it's likely to get.
The film's most effective moments are its quietest.
Audience Reviews for Adrift in Manhattan
A melancholy drama, Adrift in Manhattan is a cold and monotonous film. The story follows three New Yorkers, an artist losing his sight, a doctor who's lost her child, and an amateur photographer, who are all dealing with estrangement. Unfortunately the script is rather weak and doesn't focus on any of the characters long enough for the audience to connect with or care about them. And the directing is rather mundane, doing little to enhance the film or draw out its themes. While Adrift in Manhattan explores some interesting ideas, is poorly made and lacks a compelling story.
Very slow and a bit dull, although has it's good points. I liked the photography and special mention has to go to that dodgy mother with the 20 year old son. Ugh!
Well acted drama. I definitely recommend this independent film.
