Critic Reviews for The Comedian
For all its honesty, the film feels frustratingly incomplete, a great character in search of a story.
There's not enough of a story to sustain The Comedian through its frequent lulls, but its lush cinematic style suggests Shkolnik is one to watch.
The film has the whiff of reality, but lacks the imaginative shaping that gives form, meaning and a sort of transcendence to the work of John Cassavetes and Mike Leigh.
There's some interesting material in this dark British drama, but it's so relentlessly grim that we are never able to connect with anyone on-screen. It doesn't help that all of the characters are pretty unlikeable.
The world is reaching out to gay romance right now. But it takes a lot of reaching to like Tom Shkolnik's The Comedian, or even to understand what it is saying.
