Storyline

JR has broken up with her professor. She enlists her nervous and obnoxious younger brother Colin to take a short road trip in order to help move out her belongings. They bicker and fight, with one another and pretty much anybody they encounter, before being brought to a place of togetherness and understanding as a result of being pushed away by everybody in their lives except one another.

Doesn't this movie get any points for being funny?
15 April 2018 | by mymangodfreySee all my reviews

All of the vicious criticisms of this movie - it's indie mumblecore narcissist hipster preciousness shot on a micro-budget, starring a guy who's a cross between the poor man's Woody Allen and the poor man's Michael Cera - are fair enough. The Color Wheel definitely is the abomination I just described.

But it's really funny! The shapeless plot and the half-assed characterizations somehow work to the movie's benefit; it has a silly unpredictability, and the dialogue is peppered with a million dumb jokes. I scowled at this movie for about ten minutes, and then I grudgingly started having a good time.

By the way, I actually like the aesthetic; it reminds me of Mala Noche, In the Soup, and some early Jim Jarmusch movies.
