You might be "crazy" about this movie
24 April 2013 | by KM_391See all my reviews

I'll start off with something positive: all of the performances in "The Moment" were quite good. The casting was really spot-on, and all the actors performed admirably. Jennifer Jason Lee does a great job capturing the essence of a woman completely detached from reality. Beyond that, I couldn't find anything I liked about this movie, starting with the extreme shaky-cam throughout (was this movie shot from a canoe?) to the awkward, mumbling lost-soul characters, the too- close close-ups, constant loss of focus, the confusing time-jumps forward and back and around again, and the dialogue that just never rang true for me. If I saw that refrigerator butter dish one more time I was going to scream. I couldn't help but wonder "Who put up money for this?" At the after-party at the Tribeca Film Festival, the crowd was quiet and polite during the Q&A, and the only audience question was from someone curious about the therapist scenes. That's a clue. In the unofficial poll I conducted among people I spoke with at the party, the only folks who liked the movie were either psych patients or psychology students. So I guess the bottom line is, if you're crazy, you'll love this movie.
