Harry and Max Reviews

September 26, 2005
Though Williams and Johnson fit comfortably into the European naturalism that's become Mnch's stock in trade, they can't quite wriggle out of his high-concept premise and become plausibly real.

Seems like the work of a novice, with self-conscious expository passages and emotionally false conversations.

To consider Harry and Max as being about incestuous feelings would be shortchanging it, because the film is really about the evolving nature of love and the need to define it.

The movie is a congeries of half-formed ideas about pansexuality and other social taboos, but Munch fails to accomplish what he seemingly sets out to do.

Provocative without being especially thoughtful or credible.

Too superficial to shock or surprise.

Director Christopher Munch deftly raises disturbing questions, but he fumbles badly when groping for answers.

There are brave, boundary-breaching movies, and there are mad, foolhardy ones. Harry and Max belongs to the latter breed.
February 15, 2005
The emotional lives of the leads are as vacuous as a Joey Fatone B side.
February 3, 2005
Perhaps the strangest element here isn't the narrative conceit itself, but the fact that director Munch handles it in such typically low-key, benevolently observant fashion.
