Were it not for a sentimental resolution that explains way more about Cal than does the movie or the character any good, Freundlich's World Traveler might have been one of the more daring and surprising American movies of the year.
The theme is familiar and, at bottom, sophomorically self-conscious. Yet finally, World Traveler takes something like a hold on you because it extends the Crudup character's experience not only across generations but also across the genders.
The most remarkable (and frustrating) thing about World Traveler, which opens today in Manhattan, is that its protagonist, after being an object of intense scrutiny for 104 minutes, remains a complete blank.
