Slow moving, no plot, not worth it.
One of the worst movies I've ever watched.
Absolutely no redeeming features in this movie!
I live for indie movies, but this was the most empty movie I have watched in a long time, Next time maybe they should sit down and write a script before they start filming.,
Tried to watch this twice now and failed! 11.13
Call me an acting nerd, but I loved it. It is so consistently stylized and weird, and the actors so thoroughly immersed in Anania's hypnotic style, it intrigued me. If this isn't a test of acting I don't know what is. Reactive and internal silences are real indications of how deep an actor's talent goes, and this pair prove their creds every labored and soundless minute. They may not be saying much, but they're working through every frame on screen.
This film tries to be very new wave-ish and ends up just being boring as all get out,
Slow moving and needlessly disjoint this movie manages to be far less interesting than the clips of nature videos that punctuate it internally. The brooding Mr. Franco is almost the only reason to sit through the disappointment. Some viewing pleasure can be drawn from NYC that provides the wonderfully noir backdrop for an otherwise crushingly boring plot. The movie strives to be a character study of William, who is presented as a vacant cipher and is sketchily drawn. We never actually get to know him, so we never care about him, despite his narration. If anything he isn't someone we want to know.
A terrible movie. I kept waiting for nothing to happen, and nothing ever happened. There was no relationship between the two stars. There was nothing. Very bad
