Somewhat flat
20 December 2009 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

'The Blue Tower' is a film of great potential: an ordinary man, living a depressingly ordinary life, gradually sees it spiral out of control; and it's got an interesting setting as well, in London's Asian community. But the potential is somewhat wasted by the flatness of the acting; granted, the characters are not supposed to be especially articulate, but their apparent lack of interest in their own lives reduces their potential impact on ours. It also feels a little as if the director is trying to make an interesting film without quite knowing how, and the departures made from the strictly realist don't altogether feel convincing. It's not unwatchable, but it never truly sparks.
