Critic Reviews for Urbania
One of the boldest entries in 2000 Sundance Fest, Shear's impressive debut is a darkly intriguing drama that probes the nature of love and lasting effects of loss, beautifully played by Dan Futterman (who later became known as the scripter of Capote)
An impressive feature debut about the nature of love and loss, as felt by a group of characters, some of which gay.
A provocative and cathartic story about the impossibility of retribution and the challenge of redemption.
Superb parts and a muddled whole is one way you can describe this eventually incisive look into one man's homosexuality.
The disorienting film takes devious delight in layering various versions of the stories so that we feel like we're jurors looking into a courtroom lined with funhouse mirrors.
Audience Reviews for Urbania
***Due to the recent RT changes that have basically ruined my past reviews, I am mostly only giving a rating rather than a full review.***
Started out as a really cool idea...Urban Legends come to life..and then it turns gay...real gay..Literally
Urbania is a WONDERFUL film. Although 40% of it is bogged down with the stuff of Urban legends, the remaining 60% tells a beautiful, if troubling story or love and loss. Dan FUTTERMAN and Matthew KEESLAR both win and break my heart. If you are a gay man, this is an absolute must see -- however, the beauty of the film is that, while its main characters are gay, it isn't AT ALL about them being gay, so being gay is not at all essential to appreciating and LOVING this film. See this one if you like a little thrill with your urban epic romances. Urbania: A-
