The old pan that something is "less than the sum of its parts" does not quite apply here.

The people didn't feel real enough and so it felt like following around a bunch of New York caricatures instead of people.

Person to Person is gentle, occasionally sweet, sometimes charming, but wholly unoriginal and undistinguished.

It has the warm, familiar feeling of regional cinema sharing its insatiable curiosity in observing the cultural attitude of a community.

The film has a huge heart and a sneaky sense of humor, and there is a propulsive musical energy that reminds you of vintage Alan Rudolph or Paul Mazursky.

It makes me want to fly out to the Big Apple right now and stroll the avenues, imbibing its unique offerings and seeing what hidden stories are being told in its nooks and crannies.

Person to Person is a wonderfully compartmentalized comedy, whose story about the minutiae of everyday life will take a restrained yet worth it view to appreciate.

Though at first the emotional stakes may seem low, the more one thinks about the movie the more its profound truths resonate beyond its narrative limits.

Person to Person plays out like any of the great Woody Allen New York comedies of the 1970s and 1980s.
August 25, 2017
The movie looks like a vintage '70s NYC film, but the characters all feel like over-written, fabricated creatures likely more at home in a Woody Allen flick than the real world.

Defa's large cast and multiple storylines succeed in watering down its few insightful moments about personal relationships.

I watched it in the morning and liked it just fine. By dinner time I had forgotten I'd seen a movie that day.

An organic narrative that might feature improvised dialogue but never seems false, "Person to Person" carves out an easily listening vibe as the various stories unfold.

Person to Person's performances are engaging throughout. It even earns its end-titles dance party, which is something else you don't see every day.

The Big Apple has never looked so small and inconsequential.
August 1, 2017
Person to Person is the kind of movie that asks its viewers to open up that tender spot inside. Once you do, it'll completely charm you.
