Critic Reviews for Dean
It's about imperfections and dealing with the moment, and how the aftermath of death helps shape the way we handle life.
The lessons that Dean learns are pat and predictable, but this disarmingly winsome film is comfortable in the knowledge that universal truths can be the hardest things for people to discover for themselves.
[Demetri Martin] makes the transition into feature filmmaking as writer, director and star with just the right blend of humor and heartbreak.
While the direction is capable, the writing isn't nearly as sharp as it needs to be.
A movie with which it is easy to find fault, and if you're a particular kind of person, you'll find fault with it without even trying too hard.
