Critic Reviews for Twelve Thirty
Lipsky tries to use dialogue to cover up weaknesses in other areas - such as why these people behave the way they do. Some of the movie is inviting, some of it off-putting.
Reiners and Gummer have respective moments where their talents shine, but there's not enough here to keep any but the most masochistic even moderately interested.
This sort of emotional-chaos-in-suburbia (it all takes place in Iowa) has been done well, of course, and at times it is here. But Lipsky's overly arch and tangential dialogue has too many curlicues, and everyone's emotions seem just this side of affected.
For all the promising fodder, the talky, acrid "Twelve Thirty" feels soulless, an emotion-free zone that deals its darkness in a shockingly flip manner.
