Trivia

The main character is a photographer, and his pictures (hung all over the apartment in this film) were actually taken by director Brian Sloan (color shots) and New York photographer Craig Hamrick (several semi-nude male black-and-whites). In some shots, Hamrick's signature can clearly be seen on the prints. Hamrick and Sloan are friends, and they had a joint photo exhibit/show in Hamrick's Tribeca studio in 2004. See more »

Quotes

Eric: My old roommate said I should put WTC View in the ad. He just moved here from Ohio and couldn't believe the view. You see Empire State View all the time it has some major value. But WTC View doesn't mean a thing... didn't mean a thing.

Respectable feelings
7 February 2010 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

The majority of the reviews state how the film "brought it all back", "the feelings we all had but did not dare talk about", and on the other hand a surprise concerning the actor playing Eric who was a bitchy character in "Ugly Betty". Well, that does not tell me a thing about the film. Was it good, bad, a pretext for the nostalgias? Did it study them?

The premise was good: not showing what lies outside, leaving it all for the last shot, trying to focus, or maybe make it a bit suffocating, yes, that was a good premise. Unfortunately, it is average. And being average in a feature that puts itself in that specific period and these events, wow, it must score! Not this one. The feelings in the end are too respectable, they take themselves too seriously, as if it is a disgrace to be comical, not knowing how wise this is. And the main character does not. See how reportedly lame in the dialogues his jokes are. OK, he may be embarrassed. But so is the film. Even worse, because being embarrassed can be defended by "so were the times", this is unfortunately counteracted by giving interiority to the possible room-mates parading. For they sure have more interiority and humanity than the main character, and this makes me not really care about him. He is too neurotic and self-conscious for any caring dramatic effect, and the direction is too slice-of-life no exit up to the end, to come off as something else than, actually, biased.

I would prefer a slice of the others' lives. They seemed more alive, and, at some points, giving their time to Eric's "ranting", as his friend repeatedly said, was little more than pandering.
