This strange film reminds me of some stories by Franz Kafka, such as 'The Trial.' It is a story which makes no sense when viewed objectively, but hangs together well enough as a subjective experience.

July is a filmmaker of distinct imagination and whimsy, and while there is a great deal on her mind and a ton she wants to say her delivery of it all, in my opinion at least, still leaves a bit of something to be desired.

July's new film isn't as witty or touching as her debut but she still manages in her off-kilter way to say something original about her characters' hopes and fears and illusions... but viewers with an aversion for whimsy should probably steer well clear.

Many viewers, especially her detractors, can't see the forest for the twee in July's films. That's certainly true of "The Future" - but burrow down past the creepy-cutesy touches, and you find a film that's painfully real.

July's film-making is a taste I have yet fully to acquire, but she has a distinctive vision, a style, placed before you on a take-it-or-leave-it basis. I took it.

November 3, 2011
A playfully self-aware dig at the emptiness of some modern lifestyles that will make you check your own.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

I've seen The Future...and it's not bad at all.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 1, 2011
Not a crowd-pleaser by any measure, but a mature, bold and recklessly inquisitive film, however unpleasant it is to consume in the moment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 1, 2011
July's romantic fantasy of stagnation and romantic drift has depths, but they're hidden behind walls of kookiness.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 31, 2011
July's second film, while not quite as perfectly realised as her debut, nimbly avoids the 'sophomore slump', providing the curious with another window into her highly idiosyncratic world.

whimsy both conceals and sugars some rather bitter observations on change and mortality.
