    Straight Time

    ★★★★

    Subtle in degree, and made with such precision, Grosbard and Hoffman's film exhibits itself as a fraught and disquieting synthesis of an iffy character-study and heist thriller exploring the essence of the criminal psyche and one's struggle of living a life confined by societal normality in a gritty and unblinking manner. Keeping its uneasy and minacious tone, this film works effectively in picturing human vulnerability, a feeling of lostness and desperation enabling the path of criminality and self-destructive attitudes- thanks…

Beautifully acted and gorgeously shot, this observational film is filled with lively characters, witty stories, piquant ideas, vivid emotions and…

    "Yeah, you can't win...but maybe someday everyone will lose less, and museums and movie both could be free."

    A magnetic and quite stirring film-essay about exploring the dynamics of art-life relationships and finding solace in mutual solitude. Exceptionally and genuinely made, Cohen's singular way of looking at art in general and the world around us purveys an experiential portrait of the human condition and the transient status of life in the most placid way that avoids being didactic.
