Critic Reviews for Thirteen Conversations About One Thing
This intelligent, engaging indie introduces very human characters, with seemingly unconnected lives, whose paths cross.
It's entertaining, well-written, slice-of-life stuff, but I'd rather spend 90 minutes with one of these stories than flit between several in a manner that does little to illuminate any of them.
A terrific film that follows several interrelated New York stories and the people barely existing within them.
Audience Reviews for Thirteen Conversations About One Thing
Several intertwining stories in this elegant confusion of an ensemble piece of a small film about THE MEANING OF LIFE (only w/o the capital letters). Excellent performances abound.
One of those intertwining ensemble stories that almost makes it but not quite. The titular "one thing" isn't always clear. It could be several things: fortune, happiness, love, guilt, faith, trust, fate, coincidence, et cetera. All the individual stories are really quite beautiful though, with moments of deep elation and moments of inexplicable grief.
Definitely an intelligent film. It's not for everybody, though. It's not the most entertaining movie I've ever seen. Eccentric, and at times confusing. Rather slow.
