[Matt] McCormick's eye for the small things that change a day, or a life, is sharp and compassionate; he finds the moments that initially seem unremarkable and follows them until they gradually transform into something greater.

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.
May 31, 2011
A sensitive and soulful film, populated by characters recognizably weighed down by both circumstance and a greater, free-floating ambivalence.

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.

McCormick has translated song into cinema, where tone and feeling supersede plot and arc.

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.

April 15, 2011
This movie throws in a healthy dose of "quirky" shots and montages as if they were required.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 25, 2011
The kind of American independent quirkfest that needs to be quarantined and examined, not valorized.

January 3, 2011
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.
