When the 43 producers...
20 March 2020 | by Top_Dawg_CriticSee all my reviews

...and the rest of their film crew - and their family and friends, ridiculously up-vote their film. No way of the current 1,616 ratings this film is even close to a 8.8/10.

Film critic Noel Murray from the L.A. Times nailed it: "Frankly, the payoff to the movie's mystery is unsatisfying after all the buildup. None of these three stories really works as a short film on its own."

There's no excuse for this mess considering director Marc Meyers and writer Oren Moverman are not inexperienced film-makers.

A 5th grader could've written, directed and edited this film better! Think 3-4 different films put in a shredder, then random pieces taped together to make one film.

There is terrible plot transition between what you'd think is the key story, another one pops up, then a mish-mash of back and forth timelines, then an entirely new focus on another plot, etc. Add to this the terrible pacing, and the 95 min run-time felt like 3 hours of a convoluted mess.

Meyers also failed miserably in directing his cast - Schreiber and Tomei seemed barely awake, and you couldn't quite place Hawke's personality... one minute she's an introvert, then an extrovert.

This film had a lot of potential, but missed the mark big time. Maybe too many producers pulling at each other with the direction this film needed to go. Then again, with that many, the phony up-votes were easily achieved.

Skip this mess or read the novel instead. It's a very generous 5/10 from me.
