wish I could find some enthusiasm for this film, which was given a wonderfully austere look by the cinematographer Roger Deakins... For all its seriousness, though, Levity struck me as pretentious and intractably lifeless.

Little touch of style is enough to compensate for the lack of substance in Levity.

... a bit heavy on talk and light on action, the film grapples with tough issues at the soul-level, instead of selling us feel-good lies or cynicism.

Worth seeing for the visuals and the performances, but as drama it's maddening.

"Levity's complications, however, do not stick in your throat - they slumber in your stomach"

Why do filmmakers continue to let Billy Bob Thornton sleepwalk through their productions?

This meandering movie rises and falls depending on each individual storyline.

This is one of those films that seems to mistake lack of dialogue for meaningful silence and has every line delivered as if it were the most important thing ever said.

The whole thing could use some air, a bit of light and a little levity.

Smart cinema for folks who like to think for themselves rather than be spoon-fed by over-eager filmmakers.

Levity surely was made by people who wear lots of black, drink way too much expensive coffee and spend endless hours debating What It All Means.

Suffocates under its own good intentions and inexorable sense of doom.
July 11, 2003
In the end the film is undone by an overload of cliches, and by a gravity that never lets up.
July 11, 2003
It's probably impossible for a movie featuring Thornton, Freeman, Dunst and Hunter to be bad or uninteresting, and Levity is neither.
July 8, 2003
Like pretty much everything else in Levity, [Thornton's] an earnest, faultlessly compassionate bore.
June 27, 2003
Slow and satisfying.
