L For Leisure (2015)
Critic Reviews for L For Leisure
As someone who suffered through more poststructuralist theory in college than he would have liked, I had good fun watching this shaggy-dog comedy, though the arcane subject matter makes it an acquired taste.
The performances are stiff and amateurish, and exchanges of dialogue have the structure of jokes but don't quite pay off (unless mere mentions of Snapple and Marky Mark count).
At certain point, whether all of this is purposefully awkward becomes almost irrelevant: The non sequitur vignettes are often hilarious either way, and the film gains an oddly agreeable rhythm ...
What makes L for Leisure more than just a collection of clever, well-photographed jokes is the utter sincerity embedded within the constant sarcasm.
The directors Lev Kalman and Whit Horn turn the bleary languor of graduate students slacking off into a substantial but meandering spectacle.
