At some point, we knew, this sui generis storyteller would return and grace us with another dose of her delightfully peculiar worldview. Now that The Future has become the present, July doesn't disappoint.
With wit and unsettling strangeness, "The Future" takes a sitcom premise - two skittish 35-year-olds adopting a sick and injured cat in order to tiptoe into the responsibilities of adulthood - and gives it a radical, otherworldly twist.
Elements of Miranda July's "The Future'' are so patently bizarre that you might expect the film to collapse under the weight of its own whimsy. This is the July that enchants some moviegoers and has others reaching for strong liquor.
The Future is full of amusing, lovely little moments that are just a degree removed from being too cute, whether July is being stalked by her favorite comfy shirt, or following a little girl's plan to sleep in a hole to its logical endpoint.
