Critic Reviews for Americanese
Fine, understated performances and the self-assured way that Byler lets the film find its own rhythms, rather than setting into some template, result in a mature film of subtle complexity.
A collection of scenes in search of a coherent story, the film's characters don't develop, and plot lines fail to coalesce by the movie's conclusion.
[Director Eric] Byler deals with characters who have lived their years, learned from them, and try to apply their values to their lives. Their romances are not heedless but wary, and involve a lot of negotiation.
This diverting, occasionally wry seriocomedy ultimately doesn't add up to a satisfying whole.
It's not the glacial pace that fatigues, but a lack of connection with the characters.
