Critic Reviews for Life Just Is
Offering a British twist on the mumblecore genre, writer/director Alex Barrett's debut feature doesn't lack bravery.
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.
There are times when it grows on you but those awkward, lingering silences and some wooden performances conspire to make it challenging viewing.
Gogglingly boring and appallingly acted: if this is east London's answer to mumblecore, god help us.
Thoughtful, affable, unfashionably angsty shoestring debut about young Londoners figuring stuff out in their post-college years.
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.
Audience Reviews for Life Just Is
There seem to be points potential to be addressed with, the lazy set-up plus amateurish production & delivery ruined it all however.
