5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine indie film, 28 Mar 2007
This review is from: Funny Ha Ha [2002] [DVD] (DVD)
This is the film for anyone who is bored of watching studio 'indie' films (hello Little Miss Sunshine) with their plot-by-numbers and script that ticks off all the supposed essential indie elements. Bujalski has a total empathy with his characters and doesn't force them into situations just to tick an indie box. And unsurprisingly therefore you see warmth for the people in the film and their, perhaps, unspectacular lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible film, 22 Sep 2006
I saw this last year in the US - I'm not sure when it is coming out here but I heard it might be later this year. Its rare for a low-budget film like this to be so intelligent and well acted. I haven't seen the director's second film, Mutual Appreciation, which has just come out in the US but it is supposed to be even better. Why aren't there any young British directors making films like this..?
