Critic Reviews for Walking and Talking
Comes perilously close to becoming a gab-fest treadmill.
How did I feel at the end of Walking and Talking? The earth didn't shake, and I didn't feel in the presence of great cinema, but I felt cheerful, as if I had gone through some fraught times with good friends and we had emerged intact.
Laura and Amelia are allowed to behave imperfectly the way male characters are allowed to be in many films, but women hardly ever are.
Its slender narrative is economically unfolded in succinct scenes and features a good deal of acute observations, and it is attractively photographed by Michael Spiller, Hal Hartley's regular lighting cameraman.
...bears all the markings of the exquisitely observed relationship dramedies that Nicole Holofcener would go on to make.
Audience Reviews for Walking and Talking
I thought this movie was sweet. I don't get the title, however. I like Catherine Keener quite alot...not sure that I have ever seen a movie with her in it that I didn't like.
"Oh my god, this sponge that I'm washing the dishes with is unbelievable... oh my god it smells like a hotdog! It's disgusting... and I can't stop smelling it!" Ok, out of context that line probably isn't very funny, but when I was watching this film it made me burst out loud with laugher. This film concentrates on the relationship between two best friends, played by Catherine Keener and Anne Heche, and like writer/director Nicole Holofcener's other films, Friends With Money and Lovely & Amazing, the writing and the acting is very sharp. This is probably the strongest of the three films (and it's also the earliest) because unlike the other two we get something of a resolution between the characters, and an actual ending. This is a very witty, heartfelt and realistic film with some surreal lines that just seem perfect to me. Oh, and the cat is adorable.
I don't recall being so filled with hatred when watching a movie. This proves the indie movement wasn't all good.
