An amusing riff on the way one's creative work bleeds into one's personal life... Simmons expresses a singular voice and style.
[A] provocative feature directorial debut.
Short, sour-sweet and content to leave ideas and characters trailing in the summer breeze, "My Art" has evidently been made strictly on Simmons' terms, however wafty those may be.
It's a quiet, eccentric comedy-drama about artistic inspiration that won't knock your socks off, but it has its own awkward charms about how artists forge their identity while wrestling with professional boundaries.
Part of the problem is that Ms. Simmons has surrounded herself with more interesting actors, including a scene-stealing Parker Posey.
Proves coherent in form and feeling despite bustling with modes and ideas and curiosities.
With a casual pace and some particularly poignant and funny moments, My Art is a quiet enjoyment.
It's fairly watchable, especially since Simmons' character Ellie has no time for single older woman clichés and is likably easygoing about everything but her unwell dog and questionable work.
It all centers on Simmons who, as an actress, is flat, revealing little dimension or exhibiting little character depth, growth or empathy.
Cemented by a superb cast and a witty, dry humor...
The film is pleasant without being ebullient, sad without being devastating, cruising along on life's rhythms sans thematic or aesthetic grandstanding.
A droll dramedy written and deftly directed by experimental photographic artist Laurie Simmons.
