Critic Reviews for Life Just Is

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (9)

  • Gogglingly boring and appallingly acted: if this is east London's answer to mumblecore, god help us.

  • Writer/director Alex Barrett's feature debut settles for rites-of-passage ensemble drama in a Bergman mould, but its stilted, awkward dialogue hardly improves upon the audible lines of the film-within-a-film critiqued in that opening scene.

    Dec 6, 2012
  • Life Just Is' execution is so laboured and reigned-in that there's almost no satisfaction to be taken from neither characters nor story.

    Feb 5, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Offering a British twist on the mumblecore genre, writer/director Alex Barrett's debut feature doesn't lack bravery.

    Jan 22, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Although this introspective British film tackles themes that are rarely addressed on screen, its microscopic budget and inexperienced cast and crew make it very difficult to engage with.

    Dec 7, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • There are times when it grows on you but those awkward, lingering silences and some wooden performances conspire to make it challenging viewing.
