This is the kind of bittersweet, dire-affliction performance that always bowls over the Motion Picture Academy voters. But this time, assuming they nominate the picture, even they will be right.
The sincere, often touching story tugs shamelessly at the heartstrings.
The only thing dense and expansive... is the sentimentality.
If there are a few nuggets of wit and wisdom buried under the film's disease-of-the-week surface, Rubin doesn't find them.
Even as the characters grow huffy and "confront" each other, the movie never loses its compulsive desire to soothe.
My Life should be a more rigorous and single-minded film; maybe it started that way, before getting spoonfuls of honey to make the medicine go down.
The film is, as Rubin is fond of saying in interviews, a "life-affirming" film and has something to say about how we should view our brief stay on the planet.
The overall narrative seems to drag itself out like a lengthy illness.
Despite all Rubin's efforts to bring life and energy to My Life, this is no roller-coaster ride. It's more like being stalled, with a newborn babe in arms, in the dead center of the bumper car ride.
Seriously sappy sob-o-rama.
A heart-affecting drama about a man who has to choose between a death that gives life or a death that kills.
This was really slow-moving to me, and it was hard to stay interested. Keaton's character wasn't very likable until about the last 30 minutes, and at that point I was bored and waiting for the movie to end.
A beautiful movie!
