A movie that's admirably provocative, even if at times it seems to be more interested in being challenging than being entertaining.
Imagine if the Duplass brothers had produced Freddy Got Fingered and you'll be on the right track.
Foiled by a weak imagination and clear limits to its awareness, Rainbow Time doesn't become the strong feminist statement it wants to be.
Much of this is funny and even perceptive about the nooks and crannies of adult sexual relationships. It's also very well acted ... But something feels off.
Lynskey is a luminous counterpoint to Phillips's energetic earthiness, but they can't lift a story with so much killjoy ballast.
Lynskey gives a winning performance here as a New Agey peacemaker straining to be tolerant of Shonzi's quirks and perhaps too optimistic about the prospects of making him more sensitive.
An impressive showcase for Phillips both in front of and behind the camera, showing a considerable restraint both in playing Shonzi and writing for him.
Rainbow Time is about two brothers trying to achieve a semblance of control through the lens of a camera, where any insecurity can be spliced, edited, and erased.
Phillips - as both director and actor - has trouble with the film's key character; he's so insufferable, he upsets the delicate balance they seem to be going for.
Keeps buoyant with unexpected hits of comedy and mischief, but there's a true understanding of behavior to make matters beguilingly uncomfortable.
Rainbow Time may try to do a bit to much dramatically, but there's a Corgi in a wheelchair rig named Pizza, so what are you waiting for?
A personal, yet impartial picture about the messy complications and contradictions of brothers, family and personal relationships.
