Critic Reviews for The Toe Tactic

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

  • Depending on your tolerance for relentless whimsy and unflagging eccentricity, The Toe Tactic will make you gurgle with delight or groan with exasperation.

    Jan 28, 2009 | Rating: 3/5
  • An aggressively whimsical mix of live-action and animation, Emily Hubley's "The Toe Tactic" is a deeply personal fable that's bound to confound (or annoy) anyone outside the filmmaker's circle of intimates.

  • Not that a well-developed story arc is the chief aim here, but the screenplay is so quirky and unfocused that only in fleeting moments of emotional directness does the film make a real connection.

  • Mona's concerns and pleasures - from the regular avoidance of phone calls from her mother to the joy of a fresh hundred dollar bill - are as real and immediate as the floating dogs are fanciful and poetic.

    Jan 28, 2009 | Rating: 4/5
  • It's originality at the expense of comprehensibility.

  • I liked this idea better when it was called Me and You and Everyone We Know.
