If only the film itself were willing to be a little more untogether, to lose control occasionally and show us something new and unpredictable.
A character study of mostly very brittle people.
Another anemic and pointless stringing together of stories that are not worth telling, Untogether follows the truncated lives of a group of lost souls in Los Angeles with an overdose of paralyzing cinematic anesthesia.
Despite flashes of something greater at work, it's a largely unsatisfying, unevenly-paced drama.
At its chill, observant best resembles what a left coast, smart-satiric-serious kind of romantic comedy might look like going forward as we wean ourselves of the influence a certain bespectacled New York comic auteur has had over the genre for decades.
Although the film boasts some nuggets of truth, there's a lot of artifice in the narrative.
Untogether is a bit shallow at times, as it splashes around in romantic waters, but mostly it is a welcome breath of air.
It's ultimately a movie made of half-formed ideas that struggles in figuring itself out. The cast is fantastic, but their talents are wasted on underdeveloped characters and a marginally thin and all over the place story.
Thoughtful and introspective, "Untogether" is a solid directing start for writer Emma Forrest, who should continue the cathartic exploration of the world that she knows intimately.
... emphasizes eccentricities over genuine character development, and leaves little room for emotional investment in their outcomes.
Untogether is a very poorly made film with no real conclusion, and does nothing to dispel the notion that sometimes wealthy people make movies just because they can, not because they should.
The material that does work is strong enough to both make the rest of it at least somewhat bearable and make you wonder what Forrest will come up with next.
