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.

Poignant, touching, and in moments deeply philosophical, Sprecher's second feature is most interesting.

Clea DuVall again shows why she's one of Hollywood's most under-rated actresses

Initially writer/director Jill Sprecher seems to revel in fashionable cynicism, but her ability to look at the lighter side and her discreet faith in human nature eventually win out.

So packed with intriguing ideas that it's well worth seeing, even if it feels rather clinical and aloof.

Playfully wavers on the meaning of true happiness, the notion of karma and luck, and the possibility of hope.

Deposita suas energias nos entrecruzamentos de seus personagens e se esquece de que, teoricamente, deveria girar em torno das visões destes sobre o mundo.

...populated by original characters that're almost always interesting to watch.

A dry, dim-looking film that's more about clever structure than meaningful stories.

Fractured, flowing ensemble piece has a heart of true, sincere humanity -- and two brilliant performances.

This simple idea, though, is told with wit, humor and an interesting warped-time chronology.

As [the characters] get more depressed, the story gets more tiresome, especially as it continues to mount a conspicuous effort to be profound.

Thirteen Conversations encircles the viewer in a comforting, open-hearted humanism. It's a quiet, modest piece of work, but no less lovely for it.

While the whole of the film is satisfying, it seemed there were a couple of pieces missing from this jigsaw puzzle.
