Due to budgetary constraints on the shoot, there would often only be enough time to shoot one particular angle of a 2-shot for example, thus ruling out any reverse angles for the sequence. Director Kenneth Lonergan would therefore have to decide which angle would be the most important one to shoot. See more »

How is it that Rotten Tomatoes gives this a 94%? No depth, no emotion, nothing to grab you, story lacked cohesion. It was so bad. How can anyone be thinking of any awards going to anyone connected to this horrible movie. What a political joke Hollywood has become. I stopped watching the academy awards decades ago. But now I probably. End to stop looking at critics and find actual viewers. I haven't seen a worse movie in years. The movie was not directed well. The editing was non existent. What was 2 hours and almost 20 minutes could have been a small decent story, if other actors had been used if the movie was cut to 90 minutes or less. How does something like this get funded, and backing and even get made when then are so many great movies and stories out there that never make it to the screen. Was this a favor owed to someone? I have seen so many movies over the years and consider myself to be very selective of what I see and I went to see this movie with a friend who wanted to see it. I kept looking at my watch and absolutely nothing happened in the entire first hour. Caseys monotone voice almost put me to sleep. If I hadn't been with a friend I would have left early. Hope I don't have to sit through anything like that again for a very long time!!
