The Four-Faced Liar Reviews

  • Dec 18, 2014

    Intelligent viewers will be insulted by this 'film,' which has all the punch of an ongoing TV series. Call it "Sex and the City Redux" with even MORE shallow people who have no clue about life. They drink beer a lot. They have sex a fair bit. They have Manhattan apartments, but don't work. I never did figure out how many of them are all taking the same literature course, which allows the director to hopelessly try to fit the great book Wuthering Heights into making the few alleged statements about the underpinnings of these people's lives. The one accurate part is that in the end there is no resolution. They are all still involved romantically with the people they were involved with at various points in the excruciating non-action. And in the end, you don't give a fig.

    Awesome to watch to see what bad acting looks like.

    This film is full of quirky characters, that feel real despite being utterly stereotypical. The tension is once again focused on not the fact that the main character is having a lesbian relationship, but the infidelity instead. It is a cute film, with some interesting aspects, easy to watch and surprisingly well written, so that the strong genre elements seem somewhat fresh and the characters raw and vulnerable.

    An engaging, non-traditional, relationship film that explores what people want in a partner and how expectations can get in the way of what the heart truly wants. The film opens with two couples taking their relationship to the next level and everything looks to be oh so normal and predictable. But a fifth-wheel and series of plot developments soon derail things and the film then takes off in an unexpected direction. What makes it all work, is the natural rhythm and flow of the dialog and the action, a rare accomplishment for a first-time screenwriter. This viewer quickly found himself caring about the characters, especially the two who turned out to be central to the film, and somehow wanted all of it to work out so that everyone could end up happy. But, as in life, that isn't always possible. Emily Peck was radiantly beautiful as Molly, the one who had the most to lose and faced the biggest choice. It helped that she was so good looking as well as talented. The viewer just wanted to see more of her and just wanted her to be happy. Marja-Lewis Ryan, the aforementioned writer, had the meatiest role and carried it off well. Her vulnerability was almost painful to watch at times. The other main characters handled their end more than adequately. The simple, folksy soundtrack meshed perfectly and the camera work was superb. An altogether entertaining film.

    Pseudo-feminism at it's most mediocre. Light-hearted take on LGBT at its best. Dealing in stereotypes and drunken stupidy at its worst. Probably written by an English major. I guess graduating without job prospects spurs on success, or at least creates a demographic to exploit. Either way, not bad for an indie flick.
