    A dramatically unengaging mainstream blend of mumblecore ideas, 'Nobody Walks' features some top-notch performances from the all around cast, but fails to utilize them to fullest effect and the film winds up being rather boring, even within its running time of 82-minutes. The recurring air of sensuality is potent enough, but the entanglements that the characters get into are delivered without any real consequences for their actions. These are flat and lifeless characters that feel constructed on cliches from other, better indie character studies (I liked how one critic compared it to Lisa Cholodenko's 'The Kids Are All Right') and their troubles feel less intimate and affecting than they think they are. The cast is appealing and the look is very polished for an indie of this nature, but 'Nobody Walks' is inert at creating any genuine dramatic pull. It's strange that the script, penned by the up-and-coming Lena Dunham, has led to such mediocre results, though it's hard to pinpoint a direct source of blame. Full Review »
