"Here and Now" uses one woman's sudden awareness of her own mortality as an excuse to focus intently on the many moments of intense emotion that make up a day in the big city.
Here and Now is deliberately slow, hoping to provide viewers a chance to share the torturous mental anguish Vivienne is going through. The process only succeeds in boring us to death.
It all adds up to a film aiming to be a moving character study (and an ostensible homage to Agnés Varda's "Cléo From 5 to 7," a far more vivid exploration of existentialism), but instead feels adrift.
For most of the film, Parker's Vivienne is bland and forgettable.
"I'm not done yet," Vivienne declares. But we never even see her get started.
Why doesn't the drama ever crystallize into something we can feel?
A showcase for three eminent actresses that includes Jacqueline Bisset and Renee Zellweger as well. And the delicately layered ways in which women bond and unbond, however awkward or misread, when men aren't around.
Even an actress as good as Bisset can't do anything when her scene partner is so absent and the script is so one-dimensional.
Midlife mortality drama will bore teens; sex, profanity.
Despite some powerful moments and Parker's committed portrayal, the film's meaningful intentions are compromised by overwrought visuals and narrative contrivances.
[A]s accurate as this portrayal of avoidance might be, it doesn't amount to much in terms of sympathizing with or understanding who Vivienne is and what she's experiencing.
The psychological dig site is surprisingly shallow here, forcing Constant to depend on stale poetry to get by, which stops the feature in full.
