Critic Reviews for Quality of Life (Against The Wall)

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (8)

A very engaging indie drama about graffiti artists in San Francisco.

Top Critic

Although the filmmakers have succeeded in portraying a raw slice of street culture, they have also made something that seems unnecessarily stiff, foisting a structural conceit onto something that by its very nature is free-form and uncontainable.

Pic's cliched underlying story of restless youth plays as too naive for an older audience and too provocative for teens.

It's a setup as old as the hills, but the unvarnished simplicity with which first-time director Benjamin Morgan rolls it out makes the tale worth another go-round.

Top Critic

A minor, modest indie about two young graffiti artists forced to choose between creative marginalization and the seductions of the marketplace.

Morgan, who co-wrote with Burnam, elicits authentic performances from his two lead actors and from Mackenzie Firgens as Curtis' single-mom girlfriend.
