... suffers from an abundance of distracting contrivances, although the film mostly provides a heartfelt exploration of grief, inclusion and starting over.

The convincing performances by Lynch and Bomer push the film past incredulity while delivering a message of tolerance.

It's Lynch who carries the movie, delivering a quiet, contemplative performance as a man trying to rebuild his life after losing everything.

John Carroll Lynch: his every role is a reward, which should also reward of one American film's greatest assets with greater and greater roles.

An incremental narrative that's tightly focused on the pain of loss and the need to find something to replace it, "Anything" is a real showcase for acting talent principally that of Lynch and Bomer, but Tierney is mighty fine as the doubting sister.

As an actor, Lynch exudes authenticity, whether the role calls for sensitivity or terror. If nothing else, Anything affords this character actor a proper leading man's time in the spotlight, and that alone is enough reason to celebrate the film.

It's sensitively written, humorously human, warmly acted, and admirably resistant to most of the obvious drag-queen cliches.

Drug use, strong language in well-meaning love story.

Writer-director Timothy McNeil...crafts a fairly moving tribute to the notion, as Lin-Manuel Miranda once put it, that "love is love is love."

Even when I didn't believe "Anything," I bought it. That's a testament to a lead actor whose performance rings emotionally true despite a good-hearted script that can seem a stretch.
May 10, 2018
As a story of love and respect (and perhaps curiosity), McNeil provides emotional clarity and extracts lovely performances.

The overall tone of Anything is that of tender magnanimity.
May 7, 2018
Using sharp-edged humour and dark drama, writer-director McNeil vividly captures the unhinged nature of Los Angeles life.

A touching, tentative love story.
