The problem with Perfect Sense is its inability to be effective as either a character-based love story or something larger and more bold.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
February 3, 2012
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.

February 2, 2012
A solemn sci-fi parable set in present-day Glasgow, whose deepening sense of foreboding is sustained by the enigmatic, pseudo-biblical reflections of an unseen narrator.

It's difficult to impart feelings of profound sadness with an image of Ewan McGregor shoving a stick of butter in his mouth.

Filmed with the somber pretentiousness of a Babel, the movie never quite converts its premise into something grander (never mind believable).

January 31, 2012
Satisfyingly ambiguous and starkly tactile in its inquiry into where sensation ends and identity begins, David Mackenzie's rampaging-virus movie doesn't dodge genre potholes so much as it stays off that road entirely.
January 30, 2012
You've got to make room in your heart for a film in which the world ends with neither a bang nor a whimper but a cuddle.
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.

Thrillingly ambitious, ecstatically romantic, utterly unexpected.
