It was so cheesy, but I guess sometimes you just find yourself in the mood for cheese.

The Only Living Boy in New York is never able to achieve cohesion among its disparate story lines and suffers from its dedication to showing Thomas as a good guy despite all evidence to the contrary.

The Only Living Boy in New York is insufferable in almost every way possible.

...a movie that strains for The Graduate but only gets to keep the Paul Simon echoes.

Good drama of family intrigue. [Full Review in Spanish]

Marc Webb's film trundles along... with awkward dinner parties, a wedding and assorted pining.

The Only Living Boy in New York fails to play with its conventions, deciding to focus solely on the surface, ending with an unoriginal film taking itself much too seriously.
November 9, 2017
Not even Jeff Bridges' drawl can salvage a line like, "soul cycle is the only soul the city has anymore."
October 23, 2017
Without giving too much away, the contrived nature of the story makes it a challenge to fully connect with these characters.

If you enjoy films that are more an observation on life, you'll love this one. It's simple and warm, and just a very pleasant way to spend a few hours experiencing life and the world through another's eyes.

... tackles a fascinating love triangle that faces two areas as contradictory as the bohemian and intellectual. [Full review in Spanish]
October 13, 2017
There's an ambition here that is never realised, try as Webb did to infuse the film with that New York spirit. There's no real depth to the film, only imitation.

The film itself looks great and its richly burnished vision of the city is blessedly Trump-free. Indulgent it may be but nostalgia does have its charms.

... it must be said that boredom never once sets in here.

The film moves well between New York intelligentsia, in that vague portrait that can go from Woody Allen to Girls. [Full review in Spanish]
