Touchy Feely Reviews

October 11, 2013
Despite its hints of New Age mysticism and serviceable performances from an able cast, Touchy Feely is too entrenched in its dour tone to be uplifting.

The actors are all first-rate and the performances are fascinating, though Shelton, who shuns exposition, makes you work to figure out the interrelationships.

There's something fresh and new here, something that wasn't so dominant in [Shelton's] previous work.

A work that gestures toward depths without truly plumbing them.

September 6, 2013
The kind of film that makes you wish they had perfected choose-your-own-adventure technology for movies, one that would allow you to ditch the central character and follow any number of the story's more interesting second bananas.

I wanted to like this movie more than I did.

Shelton is more observant than she is deep, and her filmmaking can be undisciplined, but the movie's rambling, episodic rhythms do seem in tune with the nebulous stasis that infects everyone in Abby's orbit.

"Touchy Feely'' works better in its funnier moments, but Shelton - who pads things out with way too many scenic shots of Seattle - never pulls all these threads together into a satisfying whole.
September 5, 2013
"Touchy Feely" becomes disoriented and doesn't recover its direction.

Shelton's oh-so-slight veer toward whimsy and artifice this time turns her previous strengths into weaknesses.

Touchy Feely is minor, but these people are good company.

September 5, 2013
The screenplay is so muddled that it's hard to fathom what it's trying to convey, despite a twin dose of magical realism that screams "high concept."

Like her characters, Shelton doesn't know what to do when things actually happen.

September 3, 2013
Just as tedious as waiting in a dentist's office for an hour and a half, Lynn Shelton's latest fumblingly cutesy outing ought to be her last.
January 22, 2013
Shelton's latest is warm but less endearing than its predecessors.
January 22, 2013
Trading her improv-based filmmaking style for a more traditional screenplay-grounded model, Lynn Shelton delivers an uneven mix of half-formed conflicts in Touchy Feely.
