I really loved what the writers were going for here- take a variety of storylines involving completely different people living in Cleveland, reveal to us their own personal problems and situations, let the story unravel slowly while allowing the viewers to "expect the unexpected", and don't expect *too* much of a brilliant ending.
I personally didn't mind the ending one bit. Yes, it could have been better, but who knows, maybe that's just my expectations being set too high- maybe all along the writers wanted to deliver something relatively simple and down to earth. After all, the rest of the film was simple and down to earth, why should the ending be any different?
Yes, there was really only one dramatic moment (which another reviewer had to go and spoil, unfortunately) and that was a VERY shocking moment indeed. The pace and relative calmness the entire movie had going up to this point did NOT prepare me for that disturbing moment involving a mother and a baby.
Another storyline, such as a husband and his wife arguing over whether they should have given food to a homeless man, were pretty good moments of storytelling. It really made me question what *I* would have done in that situation for example, and how I would have felt about it had I turned the guy down and just walked away.
The storyline involving a mentally challenged man working for his railroad company was very interesting.Read more ›
This "indie" is a fascinating series of vignettes about ordinary people in the ordinary setting of Cleveland during a ordinary three day rain. The director cuts back and forth with skill and all is highlighted by a compelling jazz musical background. The actors really seem like real people - and I guess that's the highest compliment you can make. In fact, the "ordinary" ambiance of the film is what makes it so extraordinary.
Hollywood, on it's best day, seldom makes a film this good.
