Critic Reviews for Someone Else
Spector, who's a fluid, straightforward director, resists the crutch of music until the final scene when he goes and blows it all by playing something stupid like... a Gary Barlow song.
Too shapeless and unplotted; and Mangan's not-too-ruffled rueful affability hails more from sitcom land.
A muzak rendition of Take That's 'Back For Good' plays over the montage that ends the film. It seems a fittingly empty conclusion to a story that never really engages with its audience.
Someone Else is the top end of indie filmmaking, with a polished script and even shinier cinematography from Trevor Forrest, but it's low-key enough not to verge onto Richard Curtis territory.
Performances and script are both first-rate, but what really rivets is how scarily /familiar/ it all feels, from the listless rebound romances to the forced insularity of post-breakup bachelorhood. Superb stuff.
