Awful. Quite honestly, the worst movie I have ever seen. No idea how it made it into The Criterion Collection.

Prequel to HBO's Girls? Very similar story lines.

Brilliant writing. Captures the malaise of the post graduate or the "twenty something" at a crossroads in life. An unrepentant look at the foibles, insecurities and strengths of a 20 year old woman. Slyly funny ("it's in the white cabinet")

A home movie passing as a feature film, badly acted and not funny.

A delightful slice of life film by an up and coming film director.

What a marvelous surprise. She is one to watch. Really terrific first feature. Absolutely a must for anyone interested in who will continue that New York sensibility when Woody Allen is gone.and I believe she did this cat 24!

This low-budget movie ($45,000 including post-production costs) delivers a lot. The young writer/director/actor has been compared to Woody Allen. Her humor is not only sharp but there's a depth of feeling here that is just not part of Allen's schtick.
