Portland downer
28 November 2012 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Carrie Brownstein has become known as the star of "Portlandia", a humorous look at the quirky side of the City of Roses. Well, now she appears in Matt McCormick's "Some Days Are Better Than Others". This movie is also set in Portland, but is just the opposite of "Portlandia". This is a total downer, about a bunch of people living empty, miserable existences. The whole movie pretty much makes you feel bad about everything, even when people do good things for each other. In other words, no days feel good.

It's not a bad movie, just a real downer. Definitely be prepared for how depressing it is. You might feel tempted to follow it up with a viewing of "Portlandia".
