    Beeswax, at first glance a modest, ragged slice of contemporary life, turns out to be a remarkably subtle, even elegant movie.

    Bujalski’s funny, diverting character piece has a lived-in quality that’s no small achievement.

    As Mark Twain didn't say, reports of the death of mumblecore are greatly exaggerated. As proof, I offer Andrew Bujalski's wise and wondrous Beeswax.
  4. Beeswax has a rhythmic quality, and it eschews conventional plotting for sharp observation of human strengths and foibles.

    This warm, graceful and fundamentally optimistic movie snuck up on me, in the best possible way.
  6. There are fine, fresh observational moments, but the film is much ado about not so much.

    Beeswax, the third feature from American indie auteur Andrew Bujalski ("Funny Ha Ha," "Mutual Appreciation"), offers yet another low-key take on twentysomethings finding their way.

    A seemingly mundane story that is touching, compelling and, above all, masterfully realistic. The twins are very appealing.
