  • [A] charming and original little comedy.

    May 6, 2005 | Rating: 4/5
  • The whimsy Greenebaum wants to construct can't match the terminal sadness that naturally takes over the film.

    Apr 29, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Assisted Living is a remarkably moving look at the prisons in our midst that most of us manage to ignore until we need them.

    Apr 22, 2005 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Authentically unconventional -- opening in the form of an almost convincing mock documentary -- but it gradually evolves into something more deeply affecting.

    Apr 14, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a sensitive portrayal of a jolly, caring environment that unwittingly converts its charges into helpless infants.

  • Works more than it doesn't, though it's easy to conclude that the film exploits some of the elderly in the movie.
