    Weird! Aber auf eine komische Art und weise konnte ich mich mit manchen Szenen der Charactere identifzieren.
    Komischer Film, aber nicht unbedingt schlecht, nur gewöhnungsbedürftig.

    An odd-duck couple who have had plenty of years to be married (read: get bored) and far too much time on their hands decide to adopt a cat. They can't pick it up for a month because it's undergoing some medical treatments, and they're warned that if they fail to arrive on the designated date the cat will be euthanized. The prospect of that last month of freedom before they make a commitment to something other than themselves opens up…

    You really want to slap the life out of the characters, but it has great jokes and original storytelling

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Such a funny film for such a serious subject. I can't believe how many times I laughed and giggled throughout it.

    The script was really well written. The little jokes and analogies that were used were brilliant. I was laughing over the littlest things and loving it. The main characters had sound a wonderful chemistry together. Every supporting character was awkward but in a good way. It kind of enforced the fact that the world can be a strange and…

    Erst mal vorweg, Miranda July, tolle Frau. Ich lerne sie zwar erst kennen, aber das was ich bisher kenne, mag ich sehr. In ihrem Film (Regie, Drehbuch, Hauptrolle) The Future geht es ganz primitiv zusammengefasst darum: SIE braucht Veränderung, sucht sich was neues, verlässt IHN, bereut es. ER hat nicht damit gerechnet, will es nicht wahrhaben. Kennt man zu Genüge, aber nicht auf die art. Miranda July schafft es diese abgedroschene Geschichte so wunderbar neu zu interpretieren und darzustellen, dass…

    How ridiculously self-serious do you have to be to hate this movie...

    If this is the future none of us really want to go there. Relationship breakdowns are horrible, this film outdid the worst in its portrayal of the end (or was it? who cares?) of an relationship, whislt the cat could have been included far more effectively, and with a less odd voice. The 'relationship' between him and his new owners was wasted. This is a film that tried very hard to be strange and ambiguous, it was both, but not in a way that rewarded the viewer.

    “Everything would be perfect there, like a dream, but not a dream, because I would never wake up, and soon I would not even be able to remember my old life.”

    I’ve heard some good things about Miranda July's film Me and You and Everyone we Know, and to be frank I don’t know if I want to after watching her follow-up film The Future. I didn’t know much about this going in aside from the mixed reception it got…

    Having loved Me You and Everyone We Know, I was excited to see The Future but this film comes off a bit like its trying too hard. From the whispery acting to the monotone delivery, the first half of the film is nothing much to write home about. The second half is where it gets way more interesting and starts to play with imagery, stopping time and exploring relationship paths in a similar way to something like Sliding Doors. Only…

    Absolutely self-indulgent nonsense; the least tolerable kind of pretentious drivel (and this is coming from someone who really liked Jim Jarmusch's THE LIMITS OF CONTROL). "Pretentious" and "self-indulgent" may be overused platitudes in movie-reviewing, yet they're entirely appropriate for THE FUTURE. Miranda July should stick to performance art and sculpting, since she clearly has little love for cinema. A cat narrating the film (hey, I love cats, but c'mon); inexplicable character notions and decisions; no real story of speak of;…
