Audience Reviews for Me and You and Everyone We Know

  • Jan 09, 2013
    A strange but funny and charming movie, Me and You and Everyone We Know feels like a series of odd artistic vignettes even though it tells a linear story. Almost every scene has something that makes it feel unique somehow, and more often than not it's hard to really identify what it is. Aside from John Hawkes, who gives a good performance, there is almost nobody recognizable in this movie, but all of the actors do a great job, including the 6 year-old Brandon Ratcliff who is too innocent and funny not to love. It's not perfect, but as a unique romantic comedy and a directorial debut, Me and You and Everyone We Know works wonders.

    Such a great great film. This film is a masterpiece. It is humourous, charming, honest, and memorable. Miranda July has written and directed a powerful picture that I don't even have the words to explain due to my amazement. My fav scene is when Miranda July and John Hawkes is walking down the street together and she mentions to him that this is the start of their lives. Already the scene is truthful and touching. Now they're both halfway through the street and they will be coming to end. July told a powerful story within a few minutes about life. People are born, grow up, fall in love, will eventually raise a family, and towards the end of their lives come to an end or die. It is one of those scenes that stuck on my mind for a long time. MYAEWK is cinema at it's finest.

    Lonely people converge in various storylines involving sexual development and the improbability of connection. It's been a long time since I've seen a film that has been able to find profundity in life's little moments, but Miranda July's tour de force work in <i>Me and You and Everyone We Know</i> is able to find gems in everyday occurrences. The most striking example of the beauty she finds in the benign happens in the third act, so I won't give in away, but the rest of the film is subtle and poignant too. And what is a better example of achieving the Altman Standard than the reveal of whom the boys are cyber-sexting with? I did think the film occasionally got quirky for quirky's sake like Christine putting socks on her ears, but the film's concentration on these characters' oppressive and oppressing loneliness makes the things they do for attention and recognition more motivated than a film with a weaker thematic through-line. Overall, Miranda July has a new fan, and I have a new example of why film can be a medium that communicates the occasional sublimity of life better than any other.

    Interwoven realities of a group of imperfect individuals give glimpses to how they relate to each other to move on to a better place in their lives. From an anecdote about the last moments of a goldfish left on top of a moving car, to a scene of the lead characters using a walk down a street as a metaphor for their possible relationship, this independent film is thoroughly engaging and melancholic. Written and directed by the multitalented Miranda July, whose quirky demeanor demands your attention, "Me and You and Everyone We Know" has an eccentric yet grounded appeal that will make you feel and think.
