Editorial Reviews

Lena Dunham got her start making YouTube videos, but she emerged as a major talent thanks to the breakthrough success of this exceptionally sharp comedy, which garnered the twenty-four-year-old writer-director-actor comparisons to the likes of Woody Allen. The filmmaker herself plays Aura, a recent college graduate who returns to New York and moves back in with her mother and sister (played by their real-life counterparts). Though Aura is gripped by stasis and confusion about her future, Dunham locates endless sources of refreshing humor in her plight. As painfully confessional as it is endlessly amusing, Tiny Furniture is an authentic, incisive portrait of a young woman at a crossroads.

When Lena Dunham's "Tiny Furniture" debuted in 2010, it became somewhat of a critical darling with near unanimous praise from mainstream outlets. Heck, Dunham even won an Independent Spirit Award for its screenplay. While the film is an interesting, if somewhat slight, indie--it probably plays to a more niche market than the critics would have you suspect. Dunham's work (she is its writer, director, and star) and characters ably showcase a combination of post-collegiate ennui and over-educated (and pseudo-intellectual) entitlement. Set in a fashionable New York City young, artistic and urban environment--the film's sardonic tone and cultural critique was sometimes reminiscent (to me) of the works of Whit Stillman (Metropolitan) but with an edgier and more modernized vibe. But the quirky story, which can be quite funny, also achieves a quiet poignancy when you least expect it. I suspect that, in many ways, "Tiny Furniture" will be fairly divisive when discovered by a wider audience. While I do think many will embrace its plentiful charms, I think it will have just as many detractors who might not connect with its core characters.

Dunham plays a recent film school graduate who returns home to live with her mother and sister in New York. Reeling with uncertainty, she has no idea what to do with her life. She reconnects with old friends, take a entry level job, spars with her sister and generally just goes with the flow with a rather apathetic view toward the future. Some of the film's funniest moments are provided by the almost elitist and superior set of friends that Dunham weaves throughout the picture. Kids who have more confidence and entitlement than ambition or talent.

Format: Blu-ray

Aura has just finished college in Ohio. Her major is Film Theory. Her boyfriend of 3 years has broken up with her, however. With no job prospects and no love life, she returns to the NYC home of her mother and her gifted younger sister Nadine. She spends a lot of time moping and she half-heartedly restarts a friendship with the far perkier, but clearly spoiled and selfish Charlotte. She takes a low paying job as a day hostess. She half-heartedly dates a Youtube star she meets at a party and she half-heartedly flirts with a good-looking but attached chef at her restaurant.

Aura is utterly aimless...and it is her aimlessness that is the focus of director/writer/star Lena Dunham's TINY FURNITURE. It's a very low-budget film that depicts lots of listless young people doing a lot of whining, navel-gazing and engaging in sharp-edged banter. The movie shows us a very tiny little particular sub-culture of humanity (bored, over-educated, under-employed New York City residents with artistic pretensions). It feels very real and specific...yet the people we meet are extremely aggravating. Some will find them actively upsetting. I found most of them to be beneath getting worked up about...but just low-grade annoyances. And absolutely NOT people I'd want to spend time with.

Aura makes mistakes with both men...but neither of them was right for her anyway.

When Criterion announced this title, I was intrigued. The film generated some good buzz at Sundance (or SXSW), and Lena Dunham has a show on HBO now. After seeing this film, Criterion should rethink their criteria after this film because this film doesn't belong in the same catalog as masterworks of Fellini, Kurosawa, Antonioni, Visconti, Ford, etc., etc.. It doesn't even come close, and it's an insult to every serious film goer on the planet.

I don't think this film is the worst thing I've ever seen, but it is not a very good film, either. It's barely a mediocre one. It becomes more and more boring as it progresses, and aside from a few funny lines and good widescreen framing, it's an immensely dull exercise. Most of the acting borders on grating, and many of the characters are just dull and very uninteresting. The characters may be aimless, but the filmmaking is also aimless as well. It's shapeless and formless, and feels like a student film more than anything. Some people have called it a glorified home movie, and in some ways, they're right. Lena Dunham's cast consist of her sister and mother (her mother is a famous photographer in NYC, which may explain why Lena is getting a lot of breaks in her career after one mediocre film).

Trendy critics who are praising this film to the hilt should really reconsider their opinions next time. It is more important to look at a film objectively and criticise it on its merits than being part of the next hip, trendy thing. While Tiny Furniture is not as amateurish as other films of its type (Tiny Furniture in in some ways a "mumblecore" genre, and it's more professionally polished than most of those films are), it is by no means a great film, and should not be praised as one. Always remember.
