Critic Reviews for Some Days Are Better Than Others
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.
Audience Reviews for Some Days Are Better Than Others
Maybe a bit too mumblecore for me. It has its moments, a few offbeat jokes that work, but I had trouble keeping interested in where the thing is going. Carrie Brownstein did a solid job.
