Film Review: ‘Pasadena’

15 April 2013 2:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A fine performance by Peter Bogdanovich lends some — but not nearly enough — vitality to “Pasadena,” a middling dysfunctional-family dramedy set inside a sleek modernist house in the titular SoCal burg. The title of writer-director Will Slocombe’s third feature seems intended to invoke both a place and a state of mind, though with the exception of Bogdanovich’s splenetic paterfamilias, the characters and their attendant crises are so broadly drawn, we might just as soon be in “Encino” or “Toluca Lake.” Pic should see modest traction with Amerindie-centric fests following its Sarasota world premiere and possible limited theatrical exposure, en route to a VOD platform near you.

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: A big, messy, eccentric brood gathers together during that high season for familial contempt, aka Thanksgiving, only to come to the grudging realization that they don’t quite despise each other as much as they thought. »
