★★★★ review by Logan Kenny on Letterboxd
no one has heard of this, let alone seen it but it's one of the best films of the year so far, a profound, deeply moving experience about a man's connections with a series of women. he's unsure of what he wants in romance, in women and because of this, some of the genuinely meaningful connections he makes fade away, whether it be him drifting off in the morning, or being left alone, his partner for that moment moving on to someone who wants more. and in the end, the physical pleasures don't feel the same. there are the light hearted moments of humour, the absolutely beautiful moments of true connection even it's not realised by him afterwards and the moments of solo wandering but this film is about a broken man's desperation for something more yet inability to grasp it. and who knows whether he'll ever find what he's looking for? cried a ton. shiloh fernandez gives one of the best performances of the year as the protagonists, this might be a modern classic guys idk, find this and watch it ASAP
★★★★ review by Tom Doona on Letterboxd
"I'm pretty lonely. And bored. Feel empty, most of the time."
"Are you surprised?"
"No. Of course not."
Loneliness in a crowded room.
★★★★ review by emilybabyy on Letterboxd
Confession: I watched this for cover love & because it's set in NYC, but I ended up really enjoying it. I love when that happens.
★★★★½ review by J.P. Vitale on Letterboxd
A postmodern hipster take on "High Fidelity" from rising star director Chadd Harbold and featuring an all-star ensemble cast, this relationship dramedy is aces.
Really good stuff. Yes, it's repetitive but that's the point. Ella Rae Peck and Natalia Dyer are the standouts in this film headlined by Shiloh Fernandez.
★★★½ review by Ian on Letterboxd
surprised to find myself engrossed by this. Has a je ne sais quoi... Even though the character isn’t likeable, the actor breathes humanity into him. I wouldn’t describe the encounters or narrative as ‘realistic,’ but this does sort of nail the whole floundering, vague, shooting-in-the dark quality of romantic immaturity becoming maturity; staving off eternal lonesomeness... Not great, not at all bad.
