Critic Reviews for Happy Life

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

Acerbic but never cruel.

October 14, 2011 | Full Review…

The movie's dreadful interior lighting might be passed off as atmospheric or a victim of financing, but it mainly makes for difficult viewing.

October 13, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The film doesn't seem all that into the subculture it attempts to wryly nostalgize.

October 13, 2011 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

The most spot-on scenes show passive-aggressive hipster clerks snorting at Keith's flyers for a comeback fundraiser rave and a city suffocating on its own cool.

The closer Happy Life gets to finally finding any joy in the fans of this passé scene, the more depressing it becomes.
