A lovely and touching third act helps make up for a wobbly, at times convoluted first hour in the quirky fantasy-dramedy "Walter."
What a strange little indie film this is.
The narrative is effectively constructed and the cinematography is crisp. Even so, in touching lightly on themes without committing to any of them, the movie falls flat.
What's not to love, after all, about a therapist who calls a mentally unbalanced man crazy to his face? But it's also an appropriate response to both Walter the movie and Walter the ridiculous construct of a movie character.
An outstanding cast goes a long way toward helping the movie to leap past its outlandish gimmick.
Feels something like gathering a team of master chefs to make a breakfast of corn flakes and Tang.
I found it too much of a reach to go with this absurd conceit and was immediately turned off.
Walter isn't quite like anything you've seen before. Shot partly in Indianapolis on a shoestring budget, this quirky comedy is one of the best films out right now.
The slow compromise of this perfect world, and Walter's increasingly messy interactions with other human beings (Madsen and William H. Macy are especially good), provide both laughs and heart.
The shift from bright comedy to rather grim drama is gradual enough to carry the audience along...
It's uneven work, but not without elements that come together quite well, including a game supporting cast skilled at bringing personality to picture, while lead Andrew J. West commits in full.
more an extended situation than an actual story
I found this movie to be really enjoyable as a tale of a teenage son coming to terms with the loss of his father and how grieve can divide a family. Some genuinely funny moments with some well known stars.
