The strength of it, the subtext of revolving door relationships, would have been better served if allowed to remain more subtle.

Uncompelling but moderately engaging.

The film squeaks in its joints whenever it tries too hard to make a 'generational statement,' and may annoy you with its glibness, but it manages to hold one's interest -- surprisingly at times, given the lightweight characters.

A laid-back look at youthful rootlessness which never really catches fire.

The narrative applies Newton's famous law to charcaters that are in rest (more inertsia here), forced to move by an external stimulus. The acting is good, but overall a static, venetless feature.

Zeroes in on the efforts of four characters in their 20s struggling with the contradictory desires for roots and wings.
July 25, 2002
A great indie-list cast makes the angst worth watching.

In an era when many motion pictures are going for 'big,' it's nice to see well-known actors in a 'small' film like this.

Bodies, Rest and Motion is one of those movies that not only comes accompanied by supporting materials, but seems fairly pointless unless you brief yourself.

It has barely enough wisdom to fill a fortune cookie but it's no pain to sit through.

Every generation spends a while in the navel observatory before learning that it's a shallow, lint-clogged pursuit.
