Two Line Reviews - #338

Movie: It's Kind of a Funny Story (2010)

Plot: A stressed out school-goer gets suicidal instincts, enrolls himself into a psychiatric hospital & after a week's experience with the characters there, he gets mentored into how better he can handle life and even discovers some inane talents he possesses.

  • The film is positive, the narration is peculiar and stylish, the accompanying camerawork & editing are experimental and all these make this a nice film to watch.
  • The guy Keir Gilchrist who plays comes up with a mature performance & Galifianakis' unperturbed acting too steals the show.
  • The characters in the hospital - Muqtada, Noelle, the "It'l come to you" guy, the guy with sensitive hearing are as interesting as they are weird.
A deliciously made positive fun-film.
