The Future

An 81-year-old fellow audience member at the 2011 Seattle International Film Festival said it best: "What a self-indulgent bunch of crap...with BAD acting!" A reader from the U.K. called it "Utter Bilge!"

Actor/Director/Producer Miranda July ("Me and You and Everyone We Know") has once again mystified me beyond belief: How does she get financing for these miserable projects? Boring scenes that creep by at a glacial pace are interspersed with an annoying little voice that is supposed to represent an injured cat.

Please join me in the hope that we are not plagued with another of Ms. July's atrocities in The Future!
