Worst movie EVER! Don't care about these insanely boring characters or their stupid conversations. Put me out of my misery.

A "friend" dragged me to this, and I will never forgive her. Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy's characters may be the single two most utterly boring human beings ever. Non-stop talk which is neither interesting nor funny; after about a half A "friend" dragged me to this, and I will never forgive her. Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy's characters may be the single two most utterly boring human beings ever. Non-stop talk which is neither interesting nor funny; after about a half hour you can't help wondering, when are they gonna shut up and get a room? Lon-n-n-n-n-ng one-camera takes (is there any other kind?) as the two wander through Vienna. The poem a stranger by the river writes for them--for a price--was completely lame. Richard Linklater needs someone to tell him to eliminate the drivel. Slacker, his first film, was a lot more tedious than this one, only because Julie Delpy wasn't in it. Linklater has no interesting ideas whatsoever. I would rather go potpourri shopping with my grandmother's friends than to sit through another film as bad as this one. Expand

This film was one of my most painful film experiences. Drenched in pop intellectual 'musings', that are delivered relentlessly (and without any visible thought or idea retreival) and interspersed with cliched spontanaity and This film was one of my most painful film experiences. Drenched in pop intellectual 'musings', that are delivered relentlessly (and without any visible thought or idea retreival) and interspersed with cliched spontanaity and calculated 'happenings', the film does a great job at ignornig the mundane parts of life Jesse believed in so much that he wanted to make a tv series about them! I was aware the entire time that this was a film, and that the characters were acting - it was even possible to spot the bits of the film that were improvised slightly. Despite it's wholesome intensions it's overall lack of authenticity makes it sickening. Whilst trying to explore the supposed truths and quirks about the reality of human relations it simply reinforces an unrealistc and unattainable ideal of falling in love. Expand
