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.

Invokes Jean Luc Godard and John Cassavetes as cinematic inspirations, then settles for freeze frames and other directorial tics.

It is relentlessly low-key, but not without a measure of charm and truth.

Quirky, smart and subtle, The Low Down has that mint-fresh taste of discovery.
