Andrew Bujalski’s latest lo-fi twist on twenty-first-century comedy stars Jason Schwartzman, Lili Taylor, Lennie James, Molly Gordon and more in an experimental series that construct a delirious mirror image of everyday life in a distinctly twisted and discordant world. A subtly scathing satire, There There walks a fine line to tackle timely issues with the perfect balance of wit and wryness.
Structured smartly with musical interludes between each scene, performed by Jon Natchez , There There feels both naturalistic and highly stylized, carving out an uncannily liminal space to sit and soak up the dissonance. With his seventh feature film, Bujalski continues reinventing and asserting himself as a vital, innovative voice in American independent cinema. --Cara Cusumano
