Customer Reviews

He attracts good casts and gets good performances out of them.
J. Kenney
Without every going too dark or depressing, Looking for Kitty is bittersweet and ultimately hopeful, and a film worth returning to time and again.
J. Bongiorno
He has a keen ear for dialogue that is familiar and fresh at the same time.

If the slice-of-life, small independent film makes a comeback, it will owe a lot to Ed Burns and his great pictures. Looking for Kitty had a brief theatrical run, but hopefully will find its audience on DVD. It's a fantastic gem that's injected with a more thoughtful, even melancholy beat, juxtaposed with sincere humor and a great eye for the camera. Burns also knows how to properly use music in film to capture the emotional heart of it. All of these are trademarks of Burns' films and this one is no exception.

Burns loves New York and that much is readily clear in Looking for Kitty, a reflection of two lost and lonely men that if not quite an "odd couple" are different and idiosyncratic enough to create a nice contrast set against the big city. Burns plays Jack Stanton, a small-time detective hired by Abe, a Peekskill softball coach whose wife has run out on him. Jack is a misanthrope who doesn't eat in restaurants and as we discover, is still profoundly affected by the death of his wife. Abe is slightly goofy, but kind-hearted, avoiding coffee and "international foods" of all kinds (except Italian.) The picture is rounded out by a supporting cast of characters that underscore themes of loneliness and isolation. Without every going too dark or depressing, Looking for Kitty is bittersweet and ultimately hopeful, and a film worth returning to time and again.

As with all of Burns' own pictures, the commentary track is great, insightful and lively, and demonstrates why his films are as good as they are -- he's interesting and he's full of interesting ideas. Can't say I agree with all of them, however.

I liked this movie enough to then listen to the commentary section, and I am very glad I did. I think Burns did a great job narrating the commentary and made it something that every budding movie-maker, and those interested in movie-making, must hear. He talks about the details of putting together a very low budget film, shot digitally and without permits, not much lighting, utilizing friends, asking for favors, etc. I enjoyed this aspect of the movie more than the movie itself, which is still quite good.

Ed Burns' LOOKING FOR KITTY, which was shot before his THE GROOMSEN, was actually released after, briefly, to the theatres this year. If you only have the money or inclination to check out one new Ed Burns film, I'd go for THE GROOMSMEN, which was a real audience pleaser (I saw it twice and both times the audience really responded) and deserved more attention than it received. KITTY is minor, but shouldn't be completely overlooked, either.

Burns may never make a masterpiece, but I find his films since NO LOOKING BACK honest explorations of working-class people in New York, who aren't always treated any more three-dimensionally in film than any other groups (I actually find his two most successful films, McMULLEN and SHE'S THE ONE, his weakest!). He attracts good casts and gets good performances out of them.

KITTYis a bit more of a "chamber piece" than the ensemble-based GROOMSMEN; shot on digital video, focusing largely on two guys, and running roughly 80 minutes, KITTY is a quiet character study, and not wholly succesful at that -- Burns as an actor, writer and director generally "underplays" -- there are many times in his two recent films that you feel he's on the verge of something really special, but never quite gets over the edge. But if you like New York cinema, Ed Burns, David Krumholz, or dramatic comedy charactery-type films, you certainly could give this a view, and won't regret it.

"Looking for Kitty" did not receive a wide release in theaters, but the movie arguably has more substance than, say, 80% of the material regular moviegoers are exposed to (in America anyway). The predictable, scattered grumbles of "Oh, it's a typical Ed Burns movie--yawn" could be countered with a freewill argument: avoid the theater, rental, or online store if you know--and don't like--the man's artistic fingerprint.

To this reviewer's way of thinking, Burns' unique gifts that many folks began to appreciate with his 1995 debut, "The Brothers McMullen," are still on display--and have naturally matured. Some of the music in "Looking for Kitty" reminded me of that debut, and the writer/director/actor's charm is still there. Plus, there is something nearly noble these days about a comedy that actually contains serious, reflective themes as well. With this movie, you may well chuckle, laugh out loud--and even be reminded of the pleasures, suffering, and mysteries of life. The characters are believable and recognizable--and the story is a bittersweet one.

For a fellow not quite 40, Mr. Burns has given us some highlights in the last decade or so--and "Looking for Kitty" may turn out to be one of the darkhorses.

Format: DVD
I don't know why this is called a "comedy" on the box, nor do I see the Woody Allen aspect of this film. Bittersweet is a very apt description for this slow paced movie. Abe goes to the big city to find his wife Kitty. He hires a detective, Jack to find her. During the movie we find out that she dumped Abe because his life was as boring as this film. Kitty is living with a rock star. During the course of the week Abe and Jack become friends and come to terms with their life in its current state (yawn). The guy who printed "comedy" on the cover owes me $2.00. The acting was acceptable and even good at times, but didn't compensate for a very dull script.
