Small Engine Repair (2007)
Critic Reviews for Small Engine Repair
It's an admirable first feature from writer-director Niall Heery, but one that never really says anything broader about Irish society or the shackles of fame.
Not so much shapelessness as unvaried pace and emotional monotony spoil the engaging Small Engine Repair.
Sure, it's not going to break any box-office records, but this is a poignant, thoughtful film that deserves a wider audience than the handful likely to see it.
It's Glen's brilliantly understated performance of the sensitive, troubled Doug that elevates Small Engine Repair way above the competition; by the end, his small journey of quiet redemption will mean everything to you.
A poignant character study with a pleasing mid-Atlantic sensibility, Niall Heery's debut feature is ultimately as inconsequential as one of Glen's clichéd compositions.
