One of the best films of the 1990's
17 November 1999 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I have seen Walking and Talking several times, and am continually impressed with Nicole Holofcener's writing and directing. These characters really act as if they are best friends. One great accomplishment of this film is that it is about everyday events which are transformed into having importance because we see the characters giving them importance, without it being heavy-handed. Another is the dialogue: these people are comfortable being cynical with each other, without being mean spirited. This is a small film with a big heart.
