The Unbelievable Truth back to product details

Good Absurdist Film
written by MGallen January 28, 2012 - 8:52 PM PST
The Unbelievable Truth is a fun absurdist comedy by Hal Hartley. It relies less on the typical romantic comedy pratfalls than on bizarre dialogue and at times grim observations of its characters. Although the dialogue is at times stilted, it is well worth watching.

interesting and significant, though not my cup of tea

appreciate the originality (at the time) of hartley's approach and it's not hard to see the influence hartley has had on indie filmmaking. the tone is quirky and self-important with lots and lots of dialogue (delivery of which feels deliberately whiny and hokily earnest), and not too much in the way of plot or action. worth a view if you are an indie film fan, just to know hartley's work. but i can't say i really enjoyed it.
