Stepped on my Toes
11 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This picture saddened me. I know it represented only a segment of the teenage population, but to believe and I do that some of our young people are unable to express their feeling verbally is troubling. The young actors in this picture seemed to dialog by guessing what the other intended. In the other reviews I became aware of the genre that is being called 'mumblecore.' In my mind this is a tragic step backward in film making. It not only bores but annoys. As much as I would have liked the characters in this picture, I was given no reason to do so. When the picture ended so abruptly, my guess is that the film maker ran out of film, and that didn't bother me one iota.
