    Squimingly (!) bad - as in it still makes me squirm several months after seeing it.

    Quirky art film that fails to be art or even quirky but is just irritating and unsufferably dull.

    Even more unbearably awful than her 2005 debut. Garbage, garbage, garbage. 6 years 4 months ago

    It took Miranda July half a dozen years to make another film after You, Me and Everyone We Know, and in a sense, The Future is about why it took so long. It's really about waiting for your life to begin, a feeling not at all alien to people of my generation. The story follows a thirtysomething couple who realize they haven't really set themselves up to leave a mark on the world and give themselves a month to change their lives. They soon find you can't force it, that it might be too late after all. The symbol of all this is a found cat waiting for them to pick it up at the vet's, a heart-breaking voice played by Miranda herself (she's also the female half of the couple). At the center of the film is a magical moment where time literally stops, but while well-observed, offbeat and melancholy, the movie never really dismounts from that moment properly. I love the last scene's ambiguity, but there are some dodgy moments before we get there. 3 years 6 months ago
