  • As a work of entertainment, as a cohesive narrative and as an artistic whole, there's no way to call it anything but an on-balance average effort. Yet there's nothing remotely average about the movie's warm spirit, its imaginative and arresting cinematography or its handful of unique, brilliant scenes and shrewd, bizarre performances. show more

  • Decidedly loopy and nonlinear, Mister Lonely is precious and artsy, but there are moments when Korine's, er, unique vision brings something bold and beautiful to the table. show more

  • Not all of the movie works - in fact, huge portions don't - but there are enough striking moments to make a lasting impact. How ironic: In this fairy-tale of arrested development, Korine has created his most mature movie yet. show more

    Without question this is the worst movie I have ever seen. There is nothing entertaining in this disjointed, abstract, obtuse waste of film. There were only 3 people in the theater and 1 of them move on their part. Save your money, root canal work would be pleasure compared to this "movie"?
