    Very uneven, to say the least. I see glimpses of Linklater's late work, but this just doesn't grab me. I wish it did. I really love most of what I have seen by him. Several of the conversations are quite entertaining. However, after about an hour, I found myself hoping it would end soon. At some points this feels like a pretentious college hipster movie, but I won't reduce it to that. I honestly would have liked it better if the stronger segments were made into a short film. 7 years 8 months ago

    A movie about real life: Slow, mundane, and full of people who keep talking even when they have nothing interesting to say. 9 years 6 months ago

    Fantastic. Evidently not for everyone, but if you're into realism, this film will give you a window into life at that specific place and time, among those specific people. In fact, I do not think I have ever seen a film that manages to capture a specific reality more successfully than this one. 9 years 3 months ago
