Critic Reviews for XX/XY
With its talky and theatricalized depiction of cruelties mutually inflicted by financially comfortable good-looking young white people on each other, XX/XY at times recalls a slightly more full-blooded Neil LaBute movie.
Rarely does a fine movie like this have so awkward a title.
Ruffalo continues to be one of the most intriguing actors of his generation.
There's probably a movie in XX/XY, but director Austin Chick doesn't seem to have found it.
XX/XY expresses and explores this universal yearning without becoming stuck in it. In this and many other respects, few movies are so mature and satisfying.
Audience Reviews for XX/XY
[font=Century Gothic]"XX/XY" starts in 1993 in New York City. After Coles(Mark Ruffalo), an artist and aspiring filmmaker, gracefully jumps a turnstile in the subway, he notices a comely young woman, Sam(Maya Stange), and follows her back to a party at Saint Lawrence College where he strikes up a conversation with her. Luckily for him, he not only gets to spend the night with her but also with her friend, Thea(Kathleen Robertson). Out of that situation, Sam and Coles start going out together while Thea and her friend, Sid(Kel O'Neill), become intimate. All of which would be fine if Coles did not have sex with everything that moved...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"XX/XY" is an insipid movie that is ostensibly about the maturing process after college but there are no set rules that go along with getting older.(Although flossing is recommended...) In my experience college students are not that carefree, just very melodramatic. The only event that is guaranteed to change a person's life as a young adult is taking care of another person - be they child or parent. [/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]In the movie, barely drawn characters all orbit around the one person who has a personality(and a hairstyle does not count as a personality trait) but since it is such an unpleasant one, the movie never comes together. It is a shame because the film does have its share of nice moments.[/font]
