Sort of a neutered Todd Solondz comedy. No sperm shots, murders, or pedophilia. Just lonely people trying to reach out now and then to each other, plus numerous shots of the sun's rays reacting on soap bubbles.
Like the characters, the three stories show only the most tentative signs of going anywhere.
Some Days unspools in a depressive deadpan that might be more effective were the characters' plights not so clearly of their own making.
Although this always interesting film doesn't quite come together at the end - it couldn't decide exactly what it wanted to say - McCormick has done a lot of things right.
If you want to draw the line between a quiet, touching little movie and a wooden, deadly boring dud, you might want to see Portland director Matt McCormick's "Some Days Are Better Than Others," but I wouldn't recommend it.
Lonelyhearts going nowhere fill every corner of Matt McCormick's Some Days Are Better Than Others, a film that verges on a parody of American indie cliches.
A sensitive and soulful film, populated by characters recognizably weighed down by both circumstance and a greater, free-floating ambivalence.
This movie throws in a healthy dose of "quirky" shots and montages as if they were required.
McCormick has translated song into cinema, where tone and feeling supersede plot and arc.
The kind of American independent quirkfest that needs to be quarantined and examined, not valorized.
McCormick builds a delicate web connecting ordinary Portlanders who share loose, accidental narrative connections but are chiefly united by a wispy, dreamy texture of life and their common home...
