Noble Lies and Failed Relationships
10 June 2013 | by squeerelistSee all my reviews

Don't expect a typical Hollywood happy ending or a passionate love story out of this Alexander Poe movie. It is an endearing and basic indie movie about what failed relationships are made of. If you have an hour to kill and you don't feel so good about yourself, you might like to know that you're not alone. Lost in Graham's thoughts for an hour or so makes you feel like you're this lonely New York student yourself. Poe's characters are as real and miserable as anyone else: they're juggling with 'noble' lies, burning memorabilia from their exes, getting cheated on, and they stay pretty positive about it. So far, a good start for Poe and his first feature film: I'd like to see what he has to offer in the next few years. It's also the occasion to see Jennifer Carpenter in another role than the foulmouthed detective sister of the infamous serial killer Dexter that she's been royally mastering for 8 years. Kate (Jennifer's alias in this movie) has trouble getting rid of the foulmouthed side of Deb (Jennifer's alias in Dexter) which is a bit disappointing. We would have liked to see her trying on another register even though her curse words are instant classics that we cannot get enough of. Ex-Girlfriends is a movie worth going through especially if you are tired of seeing Mr. Handsome dating Mrs. Successful. It is a short relaxing unpretentious movie that will make you smile and then move on.
