    It's difficult at first to tell whether this is a documentary or a fictional work and this makes Assisted Living all the more involving.
  2. This finale turns Assisted Living from fascinating experimental film into something finer.
  3. Works more often than it doesn't.

    A noteworthy piece on a difficult subject.

    A curious film with real heart but questionable technique. This art house fodder is just quirky and fresh enough to catch on with audiences.

    The occasionally contrived music-video slicky edge, and the fact that there's no way on God's green earth that what takes place in Assisted Living happens in one day, it's a noble effort.
  7. Parts of the film play like the world's slowest and most insensitive reality show (Who Wants to Be an Octogenarian?).

    Assisted Living has really received some positive golden reviews but at the crux of it is that "there is truth inside every joke." Overall, definitely heartfelt and authentic feel to the story. Would recommend. Expand
