Simple and meandering...and I loved it.
26 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

"Old Goats" is an amazing movie. Think about it--the actors as well as the filmmaker who wrote and directed this never did anything before this film! Yet, it's highly entertaining and very well made.

The movie is a strange one--very much unlike a Hollywood style film. It's done almost documentary style--like filmmakers just following three retired men in their everyday lives. While this sounds really dull and the film is anything but formulaic, it is oddly enjoyable-- like getting to meet three neat old guys who you might enjoy knowing.

David is the youngest acting of the three retirees. He's the only married guy of the three and although you'd think this and his money and nice home would make him happy, there's a certain melancholy about him--mostly because his wife is very controlling and difficult to like. She is very interested in her friends and her life, but seems to have no patience and is a bit rude to the three new friends David makes.

Britt is a real sad sort of guy. He never married and lives on his small sailboat. He's also very awkward around women yet wants to have a relationship. When he meets a nice lady, she is interested in going full speed ahead...Britt is just too uncertain of himself and what to do next.

Bob is a dirty old man. He's lived a very full life and has a very active sex life. He's a lot of fun but also quite an old grouch and often uses Britt and David.

While these three different personalities seem to have nothing in common (other than age), the guys remarkably manage to become friends. Watching these crotchety old guys together is a real treat--and makes you wonder how they did so well considering they are not professional actors. Clearly Taylor Guterson did a great job writing and directing these folks. I am eager to see more from these folks.
