    In Blue Jay, Mark Duplass creates an awkward situation (his forte) and essentially presents it like you would a play. It's just two people, talking. Drop the various locations, and you could do it on a single stage. Those two people? Former high school sweethearts who haven't seen each other in years, cross paths, and end up spending the day together. Duplass and Sarah Paulson have good chemistry, and are both able to exist in that happy/sad world, here presented in black and white for undoubtedly artistic purposes. In modern cinema, it's come to represent an absence of something essential in life, and there is definitely a melancholy to the "what might have been" recollections of these characters. They create a shared reverie that borders on plotlessness, and though we will eventually find out what split the two young lovers up, letting the film's flow take you there may require some patience on the part of certain audiences. Blue Jay isn't aimless, it only sometimes feels that way. 5 years 4 months ago
