Critic Reviews for The Great Pretender
Flashbacks and fantasies, plus wry inserts of film clips and complex overlaps of art and life, adorn-for that matter, overwhelm-the story, which is built on flimsy psychological clichés amid the implacable imperatives of desire and disease.
The energetically crafted, well-acted movie about characters one would go to considerable extremes to avoid in real life is turning into a veritable indie micro-genre.
The punchlines are dark and the tone is caustic, but its central concern is a classic one: what we see in other people and how we would like to see ourselves.
Unfortunately, as with so many of Silver's films, the endless self-absorption of the characters on display quickly wears thin.
The Great Pretenders fails at every genre it pretends to be.
