Miranda July has a way of making 90 minutes of incessant quirk feel like 30 years on a chain gang.
Full Review | Original Score: F
August 26, 2011
The film's main weakness is that that fragile frame doesn't always hold.
August 25, 2011
Provides plenty of material for July junkies as well as July detractors.

Miranda July's quiet charisma is a kick. But after a promising beginning, The Future falters.

What a strange, trippy, touching movie The Future is.

July is a provocative and honorably independent filmmaker, but given the meager rewards of investing our time, "The Future" wasn't worth the wait.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 18, 2011
At times - not all the time, just enough to notice - July gets it backward.

Miranda July's second feature is beguiling, quietly funny and finally very sad in a way that sneaks up on you before becoming clear as the Los Angeles skies beneath which it's set.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
August 18, 2011
Not everything about "The Future" works. But most of it does, in a quietly powerful way.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 17, 2011
Too ostentatiously whimsical to be much more than a weird curio.
Full Review | Original Score: C
August 17, 2011
Yes, it's creative and well done, but it finally left a bitter taste and I found it utterly depressing.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 12, 2011
The Future is a drab dramedy about thirtysomethings flailing about for self-definition.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 12, 2011
The Future, July's coy and precious new film, is just oddball enough to be interesting, if not good.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
August 12, 2011
A heartbreaking journey of defeat and loss.

You may have heard that a cat narrates "The Future" and, yes, that sounds like it would be deadly. But it isn't.

The writer/director/star is enchanted with herself. I hated the cat.
August 11, 2011
The actors are quite engaging, in their mopey way.

August 11, 2011
July likes her rhythms to shuffle, her beats to go long. She is the master of sideways portent - the small act with big ramifications.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 11, 2011
There are moments of clever invention and wry humor throughout the film, but Sophie and Jason are more insufferable by several degrees than anyone in "Me and You," which was far more grounded in recognizable human experience.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
August 8, 2011
Seeded in equal measure with playfulness and poignancy, The Future is a reflection on the accumulated burdens of generational anxiety, as filtered through a quasi-Dadaist, quasi-Absurdist sensibility.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
