Standing by Yourself (2002)
Critic Reviews for Standing by Yourself
The longer one watches this determinedly ragged portrait of blue-collar teenage desperation ... the more one gets absorbed in the utter unbridled nihilism of its 'characters.'
Sad to say -- it accurately reflects the rage and alienation that fuels the self-destructiveness of many young people.
Highly irritating at first, Mr. Koury's passive technique eventually begins to yield some interesting results.
Chilling in its objective portrait of dreary, lost twenty-first century America.
Shattering, devastating documentary on two maladjusted teens in a downward narcotized spiral. Extraordinary debut from Josh Koury.
