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.

There was just way too much going on...

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.

The Big Apple has never looked so small and inconsequential.
July 28, 2017
While it manages some scattered moments that are both amusing and affecting, the disjointed film doesn't yield much of a cumulative effect.
July 28, 2017
A solid cast whose talents mostly go to waste and a movie that meanders from one moment to the next without much momentum.

Some indies are tiny little gems. And then there are films like "Person to Person," pleasant miniatures that, as charmingly slight as they might be, never quite expand into anything more significant.

The soundtrack - an infectious blend of retro gospel, R&B and funk - often feels too breezy and soulful for this mundane affair, especially when it precedes scenes with pouty teenagers, even if they're world-weary sorts.

Only succeeds when it tries. And it doesn't try hard enough.

Don't expect satisfying answers from this aimless drama, which is chockablock with characters but offers little insight or cohesive storytelling.

There's a lot going on here, very little of it the least bit interesting.

The uneven quality of Person to Person's stories and the inconsequential feel of much of what happens make the film feel a little like a stroll through the city.

Writer-director Dustin Guy Defa obviously thinks his movie is about his characters trying to forge new connections with various degrees of success, but Person to Person is really about how difficult it is for well-meaning men to get women to love them.

The whole thing meanders all over without ever really settling somewhere that matters.
January 25, 2017
Only two of the five-story threads offer memorable moments, while the other three struggle to find any sense of rhythm or personality.
January 22, 2017
A little too self-consciously quirky.

Nostalgia is one thing, but Defa's feature itself is an example of reprising things about the past that didn't particularly work.
