Molly's Theory of Relativity has its fleeting moments. But writer-director Jeff Lipsky's purpose always seems just beyond reach.
Something of an intriguing, if not entirely successful, exoticism.
For all of "Molly's" naturalistic, low-budget indie ambience, the film is a fantastical curiosity, whose indulgences will try one's patience.
"Molly's Theory of Relativity" is anti-cinema.
"Molly's Theory of Relativity" shows how our parents live inside us, and how our relationships with them continue to evolve even after they're gone.
Lipsky is clearly reaching for something grand and cosmic here, but the results are mostly just confounding.
Jeff Lipsky's world is somewhere between Venus and Mars, and I'm still not sure if that means Earth...
It's really about Lipsky's love of his own words, as every character serves as nothing more than a mouthpiece for identically insipid dialogue.
The characters never sound like they're actually talking to one another, but rather delivering Jeff Lipsky's echo-chamber monologues.
Take one overlong, nonsensical script; multiply it by terrible editing and design; then divide the whole thing by wooden performances. Voilà: You'll have Jeff Lipsky's unwatchable indie.
