Awful - Sometimes Always Never review by PM

Spoiler Alert

Probably one of the worst films I've ever seen. If you're thinking of renting this don't bother. It's a slow storyline and from the backdrop it's obviously been done on the cheap, quite laughable in places

clever script not matched by the production or performances - Sometimes Always Never review by PD

Spoiler Alert

Mmm - one of those that attempts to deal with some serious themes (loss, grief, desire for familial connection etc) by being self-consciously 'charming', but for me I'm afraid both the acting and the production didn't match Frank Cottrell Boyce's clever, wry and witty script. The styling of the film seems to stand separately from the dialogue, which is realistic by comparison, and this, which includes an abundance of Wes Anderson-style symmetrical framing and frequent use of tongue-in-cheek title cards, only serves to distract the audience from what's going on rather than reinforce any emotive power the film might have, whilst the deliberately low-key performances just seem to lack depth and nuance to me. Add to all this a truly horrible sentimental ending, I'm coming away thinking this one, though admittedly watchable, could have been so much better, sadly.

Terrible film - Sometimes Always Never review by PG

Spoiler Alert

Such a low budget, terrible film

It was slow, characters you couldn’t engage with and was simply one of the worst films
