It comes off feeling more like promising studio outtake than a polished final track.

How to Talk to Girls at Parties is primarily a vessel for the attitude coursing through all of Mitchell's work: Even the most outrageous behavior comes from a real place.

The film looks dreadful, and the CG effects are a legitimate eyesore: An opening animated sequence is so tacky, it took me a while before I realized it wasn't just another logo animation for a random film fund.

There's too little narrative cohesion or persuasive subtext to make this much more than a low-budget folly that's outre without always being terribly interesting.

The film enunciates its raw themes - punk means individuality! the aliens are all about conformity! - but never begins to figure out how to embody those themes in a narrative that could lure in the audience.

[It] comes across like a cheap made for video porno from the late 80's. Ironically enough, this punk rock picture could've actually used some traditional configuration, both thematically and in design.
