Greenberg Review


Weak
There's a terrific character profile buried within this meandering, awkward film. The actors create superbly rounded people, but the slow pace and seemingly aimless script make it rather maddening to watch.

While her boss Phil Greenberg (Messina) and family are on holiday, Florence (Gerwig) is taking care of their home and dog. And she also ends up taking care of his brother Roger (Stiller) when he comes to stay in the house. Roger is obsessive-compulsive and not very good at relationships. He gets in touch with his old pal (Ifans) and his newly single ex (Leigh), but is unable to avoid falling for Florence along the way. This doesn't go too well at all, mainly because Roger can't think through anything clearly.

Ten Tiny Love Stories Review


Good
A curious movie experiment, you see films like Ten Tiny Love Stories from time to time, with varying degrees of success. At its core, this is a fictional, ensemble version of The Vagina Monologues, with -- as the title suggests -- ten women speaking five-minute to 15-minute monologues directly to the camera. However, very few involve love of any kind. Instead they're almost all about sex.

The stories are all over the map. Alicia Witt tells a short piece about her first time. Kimberly Williams tells a long piece about a tryst with a Greek waiter. Most of the stories involve being spurned by the man -- whether it's a one-night stand or a long-time relationship. While they're all fictional (and I'm assuming Rodrigo GarcĂ­a is a man), they come off as extremely real, with a good half of the actresses appearing on the verge of tears during their monologues.

Broken Vessels Review


Grim
It's Trainspotting by way of Bringing Out the Dead, a cautionary tale of ambulance drivers boiling over in all kinds of drugs. But don't get too excited, because not much of Broken Vessels is very interesting, as co-stars Field and London act like they really are stoned throughout the entire production. See also Permanent Midnight for an example of why this does not a good film make. Plot is nonexistant, and character development is limited to an aborted romantic entanglement. Field mostly sits and stares... which is pretty much what I did while watching this thing.
