Be Kind Rewind, while erring just this side of too adorable for its own good - it's nothing if not enjoyable for once again showcasing Gondry's ingenious guerilla filmmaking tactics - is still a bit of a setback.

What a foul junkyard of Quirk it is!

A surprisingly quiet and whimsical comedy about a ridiculous and unlikely series of events that turns into a nearly-as-likely miracle. Best bit: the film's own Sweded preview.

Tackles the hackneyed with the tender hand and heart of writer/director Michel Gondry.

But with a skill that is difficult to pinpoint, Gondry seems to stumble like a fox from this paper-thin plot into a precious little ode to community.

Director Michel Gondry delivers the first great film of 2008.
April 9, 2008
'Be Kind Rewind' is a whimsical adventure with genuine affection for its characters, but Gondry's story is essentially weightless, a fanciful flight in search of a raison d'etre.

It's central message is that filmmakers are wonderful people, which is pretty much what you would expect filmmakers to say.

The process of Sweding soon becomes a community project, another glance back and ahead at the same time.
March 20, 2008
Ultimately trades in schmaltz of the unearned kind.

The remake/parody sequences are outstanding, but Black's all-over-the-place mania and Mos Def's bland orphan hero don't quite tie the rest of the picture together. Still, it has heart.

And the film ought to be funny, with Mike and Jerry recreating those films as home movies. But somehow it's not, the laughs are very thin on the ground.

Brilliant ideas dance on the high side of Creative Street, but Michel Gondry's outlandish premise doesn't stretch far enough to go the distance.
March 16, 2008
The premise of Be Kind Rewind is pure Michel Gondry. The end result is anything but.
