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.

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?
November 5, 2003
This meandering movie rises and falls depending on each individual storyline.
September 6, 2003
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.
August 2, 2003
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 8, 2003
Like pretty much everything else in Levity, [Thornton's] an earnest, faultlessly compassionate bore.
June 20, 2003
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.
June 19, 2003
But it's also a slow-moving muddle, Solomon unable to find a focus to his lead character that's consistently engaging.
June 19, 2003
An unrelentingly morose quest for redemption, one that leans too heavily on stock characters and tends to wander in odd directions.
June 12, 2003
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.
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.
