Dunham's satirical intentions can't quite compensate for the pain of spending almost 100 heartless minutes in the company of irredeemably unlikeable characters.

...an unflattering yet empathetic view of generational ennui with the handmade feel of authenticity, but it can't help but be the product of its privileged background...

...almost an anti-drama in that it seems to purposefully avoid all occasions to gain purchase in our hearts. Probably because it doesn't want to cheapen itself. In that way it's kind of a noble thing. Misguided maybe, but noble

Everyone in the film hides behind words-no one more than the director herself.

Narcissism side by side with ugly-duckling masochism, neither interestingly examined
December 30, 2010
A film can't get much smaller than Tiny Furniture, a glorified home movie rife with non-actors, a vague plot and flaccid direction. Neither entertaining nor compelling, it's just painfully dull.

How Lena Dunham made her movie is more impressive or at least unique than the actual story she chooses to tell.

Here's a tiny review of Tiny Furniture: Irritating. Unoriginal. And lacking any semblance of genuine human behavior.

Watching "Tiny Furniture" is like showing up for a dinner but being taken to the dentist instead. It's not a pleasant surprise.

Slow drama about post-college life with sex, drinking, etc.

Mostly chronicles the mistakes of youth without the ability to sort real feeling from phony posturing.

A slight comedy that perfectly captures a transitional moment
December 10, 2010
In skewering the neuroses of New York bohemians, Durham has left us too little to care about.

Dunham definitely has a knack for shaping a comic scene, but Aura is so culturally and financially privileged that her woes begin to seem as trivial as the miniatures her mother uses in her artwork.

Tiny Furniture is certainly more lively than Sofia Coppola's Somewhere, but they share a common flaw in that they're both examples of intense navel-gazing, with fuzzy notions of identity and assertion only serving as so much belly-button lint.

I like to encourage young wannabes for pure guts, if nothing else. But Lena Dunham makes a 98-minute home video seem like 98 days of hard labor.

It's Jane Austen for the young and the jobless or Woody Allen without the comic artistry or insight.

This movie was shot on a Canon SLR camera. Very impressive. Everything else about it is sheer garbage.
December 24, 2010
There's not much to it, but you do sense, after watching it, that this filmmaker might someday make something very good, once she starts looking beyond her own immediate vicinity.

A sad little self-indulgence.
