Romantic comedy from Hal Hartley in his directorial debut. Audry (Adrienne Shelly) is a Long Island teenager beset with worries - college, parents, nuclear war - and frustrated by small-town life. When mysterious Josh (Robert Burke) arrives and goes to work as a mechanic for Audry's father, she feels overwhelmingly attracted to him, despite town rumours that he's a murderer.

Despite the low-budget production, it would have been a simple task to give the film a decent DVD transfer, which C'est La Vie has regretfully not done, hence my low rating. The picture quality is faded, grainy, and fuzzy, noticeable from the first frame, in which the white letters of the title sequence show up against a gray background that is (of course) supposed to be black. A new VHS tape would have a similar picture quality!
Here's hoping that this wonderful under-appreciated little film gets a decent transfer someday, such as Hartley's follow-up "Trust" (1990) received.
As a whole though, 'The Unbelievable Truth' never quite holds together. Audrey's obsession with the end of the world and nuclear issues is almost cringeworthy in its attempt to satirise left-wing youth culture, and the script produces too many one-dimensional characters, like Audrey's lovestruck ex-boyfriend Emmet (whose one character facet seems to be shoving any man who looks at Audrey), whilst, out of keeping with her romantic side with Josh, she repeatedly tells him, "you disgust me".Read more ›
