Critic Reviews for Drunkboat
"Drunkboat" might have come off via nothing more than acting ability and a good heart, if the dialogue didn't amount mostly to aimless chit-chat.
The burnished smear of Lisa Rinzler's photography is a plus, but "Drunkboat" is ultimately the kind of pet project that never traverses from personal to powerful.
Though studied and grating at times, "Drunkboat" does sustain a distinct, odd tone. Like its characters it's dreamily restless and prey to its own quixotic ideas.
This enigmatic coming-of-age movie often seems destined to sail off the deep end. Yet it rights itself just often enough to keep you watching.
Audience Reviews for Drunkboat
Unfortunately, spectacular acting by John Malkovich can't save this film from itself and its hackneyed plot; there are some great moments but as a whole, it just didn't hold my interest, and I couldn't invest in the adolescent protagonist or his mother. No stakes - a wasted performance.
