Derick Martini's quirky, frustrating directorial debut seems to believe that a dystopian view of suburbia will suffice for a film, without the need of an engine to drive the story (or really any story at all).
Has a terrific ensemble cast with strong performances and occasional moments of razor-sharp wit and tenderness, but it eventually falls apart with a mostly contrived, unfocused plot that fails to be emotionally engrossing, powerful or haunting.
A less lymelife than lowlife combo predatory insect and human lurid split level burb noir, where at one point two entirely separate set of sex partners nearly catch each other in the act simultaneously. Scorecard, please.
"Lymelife" is a black comedy that sticks in your throat a little too much to be an enjoyable experience. However, it does have the side effect of making its audience feel superior to the characters on the screen.
A sort of facile, lesser entry in the canon of movies in which sensible, overly mature kids grapple with philandering and emotionally stunted adults, Lymelife is a bunch of discrete, thematically similar scenes in search of a cogent narrative punch
