Critic Reviews for The Comedian
For all its honesty, the film feels frustratingly incomplete, a great character in search of a story.
London-set low-budget The Comedian is baffling. The questions it poses are not flattering: How did it get made? Who on earth would want to watch it?
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.
