Wristcutters: A Love Story (2007)
Critic Consensus: Wristcutters: A Love Story sounds like a normal enough indie flick. Boy meets girl. Boy gets separated from girl. Boy goes on a road trip with friends to find girl and gains a new perspective on life. Except everybody's dead.

Critic Reviews for Wristcutters: A Love Story
It misses the opportunity to examine why a community of people - each of whom has already given up on life - would band together to form a new society of desperate misfits.
It is a staggeringly awful road movie, not much enlivened by the presence of Tom Waits as a wizened participant.
The purgatorial premise is pleasingly eccentric but, in the end, Wristcutters falls victim to its washed-out mood, and limps bloodlessly to a close.
Dark subject matter, but Goran Dukic's film is whimsical and determinedly optimistic about life.
Opportunities to comment on the ethical grey areas of suicide are mostly squandered and, as the pointless digressions begin to pile up, your mind begins to drift from the action on screen.
Audience Reviews for Wristcutters: A Love Story
Nazdrovyeh! A triumphant love story to limbo and back again. The world to where suicides are relegated is almost Sartre-esque: mundane activities and conversations, day in, day out. "Hell is other people." However, people can still make friends here, and there are miraculous oases to be found. The bond between Zia and Eugene is rather sweet and bro-tastic. There is no way Patrick Fugit can look not adorable. Raven-haired Shannyn Sossamon is probably the only woman in the world who can make chewing gum with her mouth open look so good. I also dig how the filmmakers cast Sossamon and Leslie Bibb as the present and past love interests because they look so much alike with their angular jaws and thin lips.
"You don't know what you have until you lose it." A film set in a strange afterlife way station that has been reserved for people who have committed suicide.
A quirky and original love story about second chances surviving in the land of the suicidal. Oddly enough this dark comedy is quite cheerful.
