[Passenger Side] does not force anything, but rather allows it to reveal itself, in its own sweet time. It possesses a reserve, a wry humour, an intelligence, and a type of good-natured dyspepsia that made me feel instantly at home.
Enjoyable, well directed indie road movie that's by turns laugh-out-loud funny and quietly moving, thanks to a sharply written, nicely observed script and pair of pitch-perfect performances from Adam Scott and Joel Bissonnette.
If genre demands that this sort of story should finish in fraternal reconciliation and a never-ending horizon of happiness, Bissonnette prefers to brake and reverse - and the result, though surprising, feels all the more true to life.
Bissonnette achieves a hypnotic effect with Passenger Side. L.A. slides by in a daze, at once inviting and threatening. Michael and Tobey are just two Canadian dreamers in a city where dreams often die.
