The Souvenir

The Souvenir is an artistic slog. The centerpiece of the plot revolves around a co-dependent relationship between Julie and Anthony. Julie remains with Anthony a drug addict abuser throughout the film. Without any rational explanation it is difficult to either sympathize or be intrigued with these characters. The few moments of delicious directorial choices hardly make up for the dreary story. Pregnant Harold Pinter type stares and pauses are pretentious. Amazingly I stayed awake for 90% of the movie. That’s about the only credit I’ll give the film.
