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

Looking Closer
December 6, 2004
... 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.

In the end the film is undone by an overload of cliches, and by a gravity that never lets up.

It's probably impossible for a movie featuring Thornton, Freeman, Dunst and Hunter to be bad or uninteresting, and Levity is neither.

Like pretty much everything else in Levity, [Thornton's] an earnest, faultlessly compassionate bore.

One of those movies that is so completely, aggressively mediocre that it almost makes you angry.

To get so little energy from such talented actors is an act for which Solomon should seek redemption.

An unrelentingly morose quest for redemption, one that leans too heavily on stock characters and tends to wander in odd directions.

It's all very portenous and symbolic and Meaningful, and everyone's so very aware of what an Important Film this is meant to be.
Charlie Brown
May 30, 2003
While this would have made an incredible 45-minute short, the film tries to cover too much territory, being diverted by its subplots.
