Long Drawn out Scenes that Surmount to Nothing
13 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Though the characters within the movie are quite lifelike, the story that is ultimately told is uninteresting at best.

The movie is entirely filled with long overly drawn out scenes where very little of interest is said, and absolutely nothing is done. All of the action takes place outside of frame, and while I appreciate the tension it creates, and the authenticity it brings, the movie itself ends up feeling empty and ultimately boring.

I could work myself into a tizzy attempting to draw meaning from the story, but it really seems to be a case of simply letting events from a premise play out on screen. I got a similar feeling from "Lost in Translation," but even that movie had a lot more action and emotional depth to it.

If you liked "Lost in Translation" you may find something to enjoy here, but if your eyes glaze over at the thought of staring at an old man driving a car for 20 minutes, it's fair to say you'd find this movie a waste of your time.
