    Pitch-perfect dialogue, quietly dynamic helming and small-scale action on a widescreen canvas make for a very appealing film.
  2. Given the lousy singing of Kirsten Dunst in "Spider-Man" and Drew Barrymore in "Lucky You," it's nice to report that Fisk - Sissy Spacek's daughter - shows real talent performing two songs here.
  3. In an age when special effects and flashy cinematography often trump narrative, there's a particular charm to the plain-Jane story of self-discovery.
  4. Sweetness and whimsy fill the screen to capacity in I'm Reed Fish, a rural coming-of-age tale that's so laid-back that its cast is almost horizontal.
  5. Short of pulling a Zach Braff, there's one sure way to get known as a screenwriter: Put your actual name in the title of the script.

    The ultimate indie self-indulgence, I'm Reed Fish is so weighed down in its own angst as to practically deserve its own genre.
  7. 12
    Watching I'm Reed Fish is like being forced to read the diary of a dull-witted teen who is breathlessly beginning a lifelong fascination with himself.

    Obviously this movie takes intellect and emtional maturity to properly enjoy. A pleasure, I would watch it again and again. Clever without Obviously this movie takes intellect and emtional maturity to properly enjoy. A pleasure, I would watch it again and again. Clever without gimmicks, dialogue with bite, a story line that makes a statement. Thank you Reed Fish. Expand

    Worst movie that I have ever seen. I feel that someone owes me an apology. And I want my time back from wasting it during the movie.
