Critic Reviews for The Magic Gloves
Depression, drugs and professional stasis commingle in The Magic Gloves, a limp urban comedy not nearly as whimsical as its title.
The Magic Gloves is a city symphony in which the metropolis seems an illusory maze and the melody is based on a refrain of recurring riffs.
Fine performances all round, some very droll sight gags and a laconic but illuminating script make for very enjoyable viewing.
The appeal here--and it's a strong one--comes from writer-director Rejtman's great understanding of, and empathy for, the comedy of life.
While the film suffers from a forced absurdity meant to invoke comedy and laughs along with a sluggish pacing, Rejtman captures the grim monotony of life well.
Only Rejtman's sharp eye for absurd detail and the bleakly subtle joke separates comedy from tragedy.
