Critic Reviews for Lowlife
A shallow exercise in nastiness, contriving different ways that people can be cruel to each other.
The tangled plot is ultimately too simple, and the film's sociopolitical commentary too paltry. But "Lowlife" does have a refreshingly varied and up-to-date cast of characters. With seedy B-movies, just a little bit of ambition elevates the generic.
Nicely calibrates a twisty course between straight crime melodrama and black comedy, one that has cult-following potential among adventurous genre fans.
Being a debut feature, the film at times struggles to stay on track tonally-a graphic autopsy scene at the beginning seems to portend a much different kind of story-but once it rights itself, it's off like a bullet from the chamber of a gun.
A movie with the sole purpose of an adrenalin rush, designed to strap you to your seat, entertain you, and spit you back into reality, exhausted but satisfied.
A captivating feature debut despite some missteps, it flashes back to a time when every other filmmaking newcomer wanted to be Quentin Tarantino; surprisingly, it does not provoke the weary eye-rolling that greeted so many of those films.
