Hipster Fart Summer (of Sam): The Movie
I really wanted to like this movie and I did at first but then it kind of went off the deep end and got stuck up its own butt.
"No, it wasn't my fault. I was raised to hate."
Depressing yet touching. Haunting and ethereal (although the lead would probably smack me for saying such a thing). It kind of had that whole 'Donnie Darko'/'The Butterfly Effect' feel to it. The only criticism I really have is the poor CGI when it came to the smoke from the fire. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed this.
This movie takes a look at the dark night of the soul and sees the beauty in it.
4 out of 5
Kat Dennings está especialmente bien y se come la pantalla. La película peca de ser demasiado obvia en su intento de ser indie, pero tiene sus buenas escenas.
Oh God. This felt like a movie written by a 14 year-old girl who saw Donnie Darko over winter break and is totally not into Glee anymore and has read the first 50 pages of Lolita and Nabakov is their favourite author and thinks that darkness is like totally beautiful.
This movie is nothing like Donnie Darko, or Juno, or David Lynch (the hell?) as the Variety review on the poster would have you think.
I enjoy Kat Dennings and I wanted to like this, but it was only mildly interesting and none of the characters are very likeable.
When Caroline (Kat Dennings) moves from the big city to a small town to finish high school, her whole life changes before her eyes. While noticing the downfall of her friends and family she desperately seeks some compassion in the way of love which ultimately ruins her life and as events unfold she quickly discovers that some people in this town will go to great lengths to get they want even as far as murder
One of the best modern teen films in year fresh, sassy and dark Donnie Darko for the new generation!
A végén az odavetítés valami borzalom.
Con bella fotografía y una narrativa interesante, a pesar de sus muy pesados brincos en las secuencias, logra ser una captura muy fiel de lo que se siente ser joven y libre, pero atado al mismo tiempo. Tiene hasta cinco tramas distintas, todas unidas por el mismo sentido de desesperación y detalles que hacen única la experiencia de ver este pequeño mundo encapsulado en hora y media.
Daydream Nation is not a good film. Admittedly I primarily watched this for Kat Dennings, but I was kinda hoping it would be a little better. There's definitely a Donnie Darko (2001) vibe which is a little too imitative to really work. The excessive use of slow-motion is also quite distracting. I think there are some good ideas here maybe, but too many are fighting for attention so none are properly developed. On the bright side, Kat Dennings wasn't bad.
Daydream Nation is an odd and dark movie similar to Donnie Darko in some ways. Kat Dennings plays Caroline. She's new in town. One with a never ending fire and a town that has a serial killer on the loose forcing a mandatory curfew and buddy system. Everyone, including Caroline, has some type of baggage. A bizarre love story is the centerpiece of the film but the movie isn't about a love story. In fact it has many different intermingling tales that come together. These other stories are what make the film interesting definitely keeping this movie above the norm.
This is one of those movies where the writer/director presents the main character in such a way that you can tell he thinks she is the coolest person on Earth, but in reality the character is just an asshole with a superiority complex.
Combine this with the fact that there are a number of cutesy, useless moments in the film (i.e. random fire outside of town, random serial killer - seriously- and not one, not two, but three separate scenes where rocks mysteriously get thrown at things for no apparent reason) and this would have definitely benefited from having a different person directing in order to curb some of the weaknesses in the script.
Too bad. I was expecting to like this movie because I tend to like Dennings in pretty much everything, but as the lead in this film she's thoroughly unlikable.

Apparently, two-person, monomagous relationships just aren't interesting enough for some filmmakers. I'm okay with that.
