Quotes

Sophie: As Paw Paw: How long was thirty days? It was turning out to be a little bit longer than say, for example, the day after tomorrow. Outside there was no time, no hours. Just alive, or not alive, or... bird. Now there was this new thing. Waiting, waiting for them to come get me. Waiting for my real life to begin. I learned to count the seconds. Now, now, now...

Meh.
8 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found The Future somewhat tolerable, and in the days since I watched this "filmovie" I've found myself struggling to interpret Miranda July's work. In that sense, it's "art," but I can't say it's good art.

There were some sincerely endearing and moving moments, mixed with quirk, pity and despair. That shouldn't necessarily be a negative; how many great pieces of art evoke whimsy, sadness, tears, hopelessness, fear for our future? This filmovie, however, left me fearful of the future of so called up-and-coming film artists. I struggled to realize a genuine point of contention between the two main characters (or the state of their lives), which is the fault of narration and direction. Atop this, there wasn't enough of a tipping point for me to realistically believe the after-climax narration. I understand that this "filmoive" was trying to deeply and critically analyze that point when adulthood becomes less of a choice and more of a fact of life, but it fails. Sizably.
