The look of Some Velvet Morning remains clean and flat, the decor [is] mostly hotel-room neutral. The major visual idea is to have Eve's red dress and lipstick stand out against a monochromatic backdrop: effective in itself, but not enough.
With Some Velvet Morning, LaBute returns to the provocative style that made his name.
Though LaBute wrote this for the screen, I mistakenly decided that it must have originated onstage... because the oblique, heavily freighted dialogue seems too elegant and artful for a medium dominated by hacks.
A sad example of what sometimes happens when a writer of gripping stage plays controls his own independent movie to his own selfish, labored self-satisfaction.
I came away from this malevolent exercise with the sense that these two add up to little more than the sum of their awfulness.
This smallest of films marks a welcome return to the world of interpersonal miniature for the writer-director. I hope he stays here a while.
Highly intriguing and verbally thrilling.
Some final contextual cues hint that we shouldn't be so sure and suggest that Labute has something to say about ends justifying means.
Some might view the end as a cruel prank at the expense of moviegoers while others might consider it a cop-out, but perhaps the point of it all is that we should not rush to judgment when it comes to Mr. LaBute's theater of cruelty.
Some Velvet Morning is at best a missed opportunity and mercifully, a short one.
Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve waste their time and ours in a dreadful, boring two-hander about a man who leaves his wife for his much younger mistress.
It's a tantalising walk on the dark side and LaBute is the ultimate manipulator: I was enthralled, repulsed and intrigued, often feeling like a voyeur peering into a labyrinth of intimacies
Drags on and on. Not sure if I was relieved or annoyed about the true ending.
