There is a bit of shaggy dog quality to the film, it meanders all over the damn place, but it has charm to boot, and a marvelous soundtrack, that director Jean-Marc Vallée secured through pure bloody-minded tenaciousness.
Though not the revelation some over-zealous critics would have you believe-the movie is essentially plotless-C.R.A.Z.Y. is a well-constructed, highly rewatchable study of a regular, middle-class family.
If Brokeback Mountain was the bleak gay drama of 2005 that all audiences could enjoy, then another 2005 feature, the equally heterosexually enjoyable C.R.A.Z.Y., puts the colour back in the adjective 'gay'.
An exuberant, disarming entertainment, C.R.A.Z.Y. makes a familiar story seem new all over again through its sheer showmanship, sharp humor and a wise, profound understanding of the highs and lows of family ties.
