Another indie movie placing high value on quirkiness. When "Juno" tried this and people raved about it, I more or less shunned the very idea that one of these could be great, but this one has a loving attention to detail only surpassed by it's fantastic exploration of relationships. The subtle and less subtle references to classic movies are a nice nod to filmophiles like myself. Sure, the dying girl may be a bit of a device, but when everything else is sublime, who cares?

Beautiful photography and camerawork. I wasn't surprised to find out the cinematography was done by Chung-hoon Chung, notable for collaborating on almost all of Chan-wook Park park's best looking movies. Its plot and characters often can't hold it afloat, though. It has a lot of good faces, but the overbearing whimsy, unearned sentimentality, and a dying girl that's mostly a device rather than a flesh and blood person, frequently works against what could have been a genuinely touching story.

What's so frustrating about Me and Earl is that it's only half of a good movie. Initially, it seemed like it was going to be an antidote to the usual sappiness that makes the teenage weepie genre so unbearable. But quirky witticisms alone cannot sustain a full-length feature and the lack of character development becomes obvious halfway through as it shifts to a more emotional tone that feels completely unearned.

I appreciate this film (beautiful cinematography), and it somehow manages to avoid being the melodramatic sapfest that its title implies, but it didn't warm the cockles of my heart. This is a badly written review.

same cliched story where boy is coming of age, dealing with being a social outcast, using a young woman dying of cancer to project his own male adolescent issues
