Downtown: A Street Tale Reviews

May 22, 2007
Amounts to little more than a downbeat soap opera.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
May 11, 2007
As maudlin and overly familiar as it is earnest.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 11, 2007
[Director] Zielinski's attempts at serving up grunge and grittiness largely fall flat. Scenes of sex and drug use are typically accompanied by a swooning and intrusive soundtrack.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Clichéd though it may be, this movie was clearly made with love.

We're asked to invest in too many characters; on the other hand, aside from Bujold, there's no one you want or need to know more about.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 23, 2007
Many actors have written far worse debut scripts, and except for one shot...it all comes off grungy and sad and cold-as-concrete unromanticized.
April 21, 2007
As Downtown plods toward its Christmas Eve-set climax, the film's tendency to OD on melodrama detracts from its grittier moments.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/6
April 20, 2007
Veteran actress Bujold's powerful, unaffected performance is the anchor that keeps the film's episodic subplots from spinning off into chaos.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 20, 2007
Earnest intentions can't begin to save this clumsy cautionary tale about teens and twentysomethings trying to survive on the mean streets of Manhattan.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
April 20, 2007
A hackneyed melodrama partly redeemed by a cast convinced that it's performing Tennessee Williams.
