This dreary independent drama is essentially an art-world soap opera, but without the melodramatic verve that makes some soap operas interesting.

What we have here is a household ripe with seduction, lust, betrayal and repression, all kept below the surface by increasingly strained good manners.

...a self-important nightmare ... shallow script and boring situations. Perhaps that is the simplest way to sum up the film, boring. Offensively boring.

The direction is decent, and the film is handsome. But it's finally frustrating, enigmatic in a way that suggests emptiness more than mystery.

You feel the characters' pangs as they spin out of control, and you are reminded of how easy it is for a careless sexual adventurer to destroy relationships and families on a whim, without even fully realizing it.

If you allow yourself to drift with it, rather than get frustrated by all the non sequiturs, "Nobody Walks" becomes a more enjoyable film.

Russo-Young's characters simply feel like complex, confused people trying desperately to be happy without also destroying their lives with their poor impulse control.

The acting ensemble is crucial. Everyone's really fine.

Nobody Walks is a film of acutely observed little moments that unfortunately don't add up to anything of substance. It's a forgettable shrug of a movie, pleasant enough, but unlikely to linger.

Russo-Young studies the strange species of affluent Angelenus erectus under a microscope that distorts every character into unbelievability.

The actors are all completely wasted in this dumb travesty of fumbling, unfocused, oversexed numbskulls who work in the movie business.

Artfully constructed but hollow at its core, "Nobody Walks" makes it impossible to stop watching while simultaneously making it impossible to care about what's happening.

For a film about sexual conquest, Nobody Walks is a frustratingly flaccid affair.

Sensitively written, nicely shot, expertly acted, and intelligently ambiguous, "Nobody Walks" still manages to send you out with a shrug.

The characters, especially Kolt's Italian tutor, demonstrate they have the impulse control of toddlers.

A young woman's arrival creates sexual upheavals in a cool, artistic L.A. household, in an unsatisfying drama that might have worked better as a comedy.

Nobody Walks looks and sounds great.

Though only 85 minutes long, Nobody Walks rambles, jumping from vignette to vignette with nothing in the way of narrative drive or sparkling dialogue to justify its existence.
