Lotus Eaters Reviews

April 3, 2013
Like its characters, Lotus Eaters is a visual treat-and emotionally vapid.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 2, 2013
The free spirit-ness of its characters is certainly mirrored in the film's aesthetic playfulness, but the initial glimmer of Fassbinder-esque expression quickly veers toward Xavier Dolan-grade affectation.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 26, 2011
Lotus Eaters tracks a posse of pointless rich kids around London, but the result can come across as even more aimless than the antics on screen.
June 16, 2011
Less a succinct narrative than a meandering portrait of several ultra-rich, ultra-empty thirtysomethings who waste away their days with sex, drugs and ennui.
April 5, 2013
Overflows with underdeveloped characters and plotlines.
May 16, 2012
A braying, caricatured ensemble which spouts poor dialogue and drowns out anything more tender or well-observed that the film may wish to say about the elegantly wasted.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 19, 2014
Sadly, there's a fatalism to the entire narrative that veers into outright melodramatic scolding in the movie's final images.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 26, 2011
Fascinating black and white photography cannot make up for the lack of energy in this dreamscape of human misery.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
March 27, 2013
A lazily directed, flabby look at a group of young, too-rich Londoners whose lives are so miserable you'll be tempted to give up your money and move to an ashram or monastery.

Maddeningly shallow-maybe that's the point-but McGuinness does have talent.
April 12, 2013
Even though the handsome black-and-white lensing is no substitute for a compelling story, it helps, infusing the skin-deep sketches of emotional enervation with aesthetic energy - for a while.
April 5, 2013
Lotus Eaters wants desperately to be a portrait of the beautiful and the damned, with its tale of West London rich kids doing drugs and shagging each other, but it's more like a spectacle of the spoiled and annoying.
