Critic Reviews for Just Jim

All Critics (10)

Just Jim, with Roberts as Jim, is another coming of age tale, this one enlivened by the appearance of Emile Hirsch as Jim's cool new neighbour and mentor. Slight.

Some of it sticks; some of it doesn't. But there's a huge amount to admire in Roberts' sheer cinematic exuberance, with a determinedly non-naturalistic perspective.

Craig Robert's film debut takes on the diferent tropes of the teen comedy genre but infuses them with dark and acid humor, making it a much more enjoyable experience. [Full review in Spanish]

Roberts is already a singular screen presence, and here acquits himself confidently behind the camera, handling the film's shifting tones with nicely cracked off-kilter humour.

All over the shop, but much about it is bold and lovable.

There's classy camerawork to recommend, but the story peters out.
