Critic Reviews for Lulu on the Bridge
This wanbabe noir is frustrating due to the meandering nature of the pretentious, riddle-like script and lethargic, incompetent direction of Paul Auster in his solo directorial debut
Less spellbinding than it wants to be, losing its energy and occasionally its brains in long passages of surprisingly sentimental schmaltz.
Right up to the end, which was a lousy cheat ending, I was entranced by the story and the characters.
I just got the feeling Auster didn't know too much more about this mystery than the viewer did.
Auster's script asks us to suspend our disbelief far more than is reasonable.
Audience Reviews for Lulu on the Bridge
I'm sorry this is just one of the worst movies of all time. Something about me doesn't want to watch a horrible plot and Willem Dafoe sing 'Singin in the Rain'. Terrible acting and an embarrassment to filmmaking. Easily the worst movie I've ever seen.
A jazz saxophonist (Harvey Keitel) loses his capability to play when he is injured in a shooting at a cafe where he was playing. He sinks into depression when everyone charges in to take care of him, including his ex-wife (Gina Gershon). However, he discovers a stone with a telephone number attached. Returning the stone, he meets a young aspiring actress (Mira Sorvino) who in one of those film coincidences is listening to his music. Soon the two begin an affair which is fouled by his over-obsessiveness with her which costs them both a job at a restaurant. Willem Dafoe also appears as an anthropologist who is out to get the stone.
I had high hopes for another film starring Keitel and written by Paul Auster. It really wasn't that great and the payoff was more convoluted than not.
