Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

Sunday, October 12, 2008

The title was a tipoff, but this is another indie quirkfest with an oppressive soundtrack that is constantly telling you to FEEL THE EMOTIONS.

I felt about this one how I feel about Juno and Little Miss Sunshine, and that's fitting because this is sort of like if Before Sunrise was done in the style of those movies. It's cute and a little funny and pleasant and also lightweight and slightly forgettable. Only this one isn't riding on a mile-high wave of hype, and definitely isn't going to be nominated for best picture, so my expectations were appropriately lower. I can enjoy it for the (rather modest) pleasure that it is and not feel like I have to hold it to some higher standard.
