    This was a completely terrible cinematic exerience. The most boring and terrible moments of my life are far more fun and interesting than the best moments of this film. Emerging from the theater, I was relieved to realize within myself that after all, the real world is not as bleak and hopeless and dry as portrayed in "13 Conversations". The messege was weak and un-true, the dialogue This was a completely terrible cinematic exerience. The most boring and terrible moments of my life are far more fun and interesting than the best moments of this film. Emerging from the theater, I was relieved to realize within myself that after all, the real world is not as bleak and hopeless and dry as portrayed in "13 Conversations". The messege was weak and un-true, the dialogue clown-like, and the photography dull and sometimes painfull. This is the worst art film that I've seen since The Blair Witch Project. Expand

    Horrible. Yes, Horrible. I have not seen a movie with so little coherence in my life. And I saw Episode II. How could it have gone so badly, so immaturely? How could actors we've trusted make such banal, cruel statements with no payoff? There are some good actors in this film, but none of them do good acting. Clea Duvall did some nice, simple work. But it is testament to the Horrible. Yes, Horrible. I have not seen a movie with so little coherence in my life. And I saw Episode II. How could it have gone so badly, so immaturely?

But it is testament to the crappyness of this movie that she was hit by a car within twenty minutes. Crap. Expand

  1. It starts slowly, but this contemplative drama's cumulative effect is genuinely haunting.
  2. 75
    Nothing fantastic or supernatural ever happens, but you can still feel cosmic forces at work behind the scenes, conspiring to repeatedly test the movie's characters, doling out reward and punishment in equal doses.
  3. Smart, serious and deftly composed, New York director Jill Sprecher's jigsaw anthology film, Thirteen Conversations About One Thing, is the kind of work you want to applaud just for its ambitions.
