  • It is typical of Bujalski's finely wrought observation of their lives that the film ends, as it began, with a moment in which Lauren is poised, indecisively, on the cusp of a decision.

    April 8, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Ultimately a dull story about dull thirtysomethings whose dull issues are conveyed in a prying, cinema verit style, implying drama and meaning in the mundane details of their dull lives.

    April 7, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's weirdly gripping, an authentically banal slice of life. Mumblecore must die. But maybe from its ashes will come something spikier, stranger.

    April 16, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A relentlessly talky and meandering slough of claustrophobia passing itself off as an intimate life study.

    April 15, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • More than ever, Bujalski comes across like the natural heir to someone like Eric Rohmer, an artist who creates intricate, perceptive and artful cinema that rejects unnecessary style and contrivance.

Audience Reviews for Beeswax

  • Apr 29, 2012
    Wow this was hard viewing. Rarely have I sat through such a dull film, and this had potential, that's the worst bit. I am not someone who enjoys blockbusters and explosions, so no one can claim I don't get "slice of life" films, generally speaking, I do. But this is so tediously dull and nothing happens. There is no point at all to this story. The cast do well with what they have, and I liked the setting at the vintage clothing shop. If they had have given this an actual plot, I think I would have really liked this film. As it is, I feel like I just sat through a really boring day at work listening to other people talk crap. I would really like my 2 hours back.

    God this was boring. This is labelled as a comedy is it? Could have fooled me. I heard it was used as a placedo for sleeping pills.

    Will the monotony ever cease?! Unrelentingly dull and painfully realistic: Beeswax is only for those who enjoy unenjoyable movies. 42/100
