It's difficult to impart feelings of profound sadness with an image of Ewan McGregor shoving a stick of butter in his mouth.
October 5, 2011
Chicly shot and edited, and pretty much art-directed to death, Mackenzie's movie is curiously underwhelming and unbearably pretentious.

This film from David Mackenzie is such a curiously inert experience that never satisfies as a romance, a sci-fi drama or as a social parable.
October 6, 2011
A half-baked apocalypse in slow motion.

The problem with Perfect Sense is its inability to be effective as either a character-based love story or something larger and more bold.

Sadly, the central romance fails to convince as the two leads lack chemistry...

A pretentious and perfectly daft film that manages to combine absurdity with tedium.

Sadly, even aficionados of the Cinema of Extinction may make "Perfect Sense" an Omega choice.

Ultimately too silly to truly captivate.

Leaves you with the sense of a good film that has been lost somewhere along the line.

The story and characters have nowhere to go beyond bleak acceptance of the inevitable. So it's difficult to care what happens.

People around the world progressively lose their senses of smell, taste, hearing and, finally, sight. Too bad the filmmakers never seem to have had a sense of humor in the first place.

October 27, 2011
The film loses its charm with annoying sequences that have a narrator explain to us "The Meaning of it All" and then tell us "What Really Matters" in life: Love. Love. Love.

It's a movie that leaves you guiltily unimpressed while it pours its pseudo-lyrical heart out.

Has an intriguing premise but fails to do anything interesting with it and ultimately struggles to engage on an emotional level, thanks to flatly written characters and some painfully pretentious direction.

The most depressing film in recent memory might be this low-budget apocalyptic Irish romance.
January 25, 2012
The film's limited budget means that the end of the world looks no more cataclysmic than a prolonged strike by Glasgow's bin-men.
January 31, 2012
Filmed with the somber pretentiousness of a Babel, the movie never quite converts its premise into something grander (never mind believable).
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 3, 2011
a study of increasing depravity through a pair of lovers who adaptively appreciate each other the best they can as the world erodes around them.
