Has an aura of honest observation that engages even when almost nothing is happening on-screen.

Thraves lets his story drag as if aimless drama will somehow reflect the aimlessness of his characters' lives. It doesn't; it simply bores.

It does have something to say to those patient enough to stick with it.

Has such a prosaic, straightforward approach, it's sublime.

Yes, this is another English dramedy about the demands of friendship, but it's in a far more realist key than the posh, slick Hugh Grant films.

One of the most aimless, hard-to-follow films I've seen in a long time.
