Goofs

While Duncan is playing Tucker Crowe's album for Carley and she's looking around the room, there's a poster on the wall for The Pit Club with Crowe's last show in 1993, but it lists Anberlin as headliner of the next show; however, Anberlin wasn't formed until 2002. Also listed on the poster are Drowning Pool (formed 1996), White Rabbits (members met in 2004), Mudvane (formed 1996) and Sick Puppies (formed 1997). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Duncan Thomson: Hello! Welcome to 'Can You Hear Me?', your source for all things Tucker Crowe. If you're here, you're probably already a fan of Tucker's music. But if you're merely 'Crowe-curious', or you clicked on the link by accident, allow me to introduce you to one of the most seminal, and yet unsung, figures of alternative rock.

An enjoyable, if slightly forgettable, entry into the better half of its genre.
4 November 2018 | by Pjtaylor-96-138044See all my reviews

'Juliet, Naked (2018)' has some interesting themes - especially surrounding the different, but equally valid, meanings of art to the consumer and to the artist themselves, and the way that one's appreciation for something that someone else could consider 'trivial' can become an integral part of their identity and that it is in no way less legitimate because of its apparent 'triviality'. The flick also has some very well rounded characters, who are all performed excellently; Ethan Hawke's weathered singer-songwriter, in particular, always carries the weight of a tangible past with him. The film is an entertaining time throughout, too, and is a pleasant experience on the whole, one that's as predictable as it is confidently crafted. There doesn't seem to be that extra 'thing', whatever that may be, that could've set this apart from the crowd, though. Ultimately, this makes the piece a perfectly enjoyable entry into the better half of its genre, one that doesn't necessarily stand out from the others in that same category but isn't actually worse for it, just slightly less memorable. 6/10
