I can best describe this movie as adjacent.

We're introduced to lots of people, but all the mechanisms of film are used to enforce a protective distance between us and them instead of stripping either them or us.

While the script and characters are well and good enough as a base, the film can't seem to figure out what is or isn't important--and so neither can I.

Most disappointing, however, is the glaring lack of cinematic vision. Almost nothing at all is done visually, the camera work is pretty tepid (probably less than half a dozen interesting shots, and most of it looked downright PBS movie quality--and not in a good way), and a meandering and spotty dabbling with music that got me just interested enough to be half-puzzled, half-annoyed.
