"Dysfunctionality" - a review by thestudent

Comprising many characters, thrown together in a mess of ugly interaction, Me and You and Everyone We Know is the work of artist Miranda July, who wrote, directed and defiantly starred in this witty and altogether sweet film, fundamentally about love.

It's hard to describe exactly what makes this film work so so well, or what sees July turn her character from painfully awkward to lovable muse — but what can be said for sure is that every role in this film is acted perfectly, right down to its most minor, most giddy roles.

The film is highlighted by the character of separated show salesman Richard, who is the unwitting love interest of performance artist Christine, played by July. His role in raising his kids never sinks into weak sympathetic fluff for the audience to gobble up, instead he is plainly dysfunctional, and his two boys know it.

I absolutely want to see this film again, and suggest that everyone who has the chance to sees it themselves, just once, or maybe again and again.


thestudent gives this movie 9 out of 10.
