Staff Pick

Is there a creative project Miranda July can't conquer? If you've jealously posed this question before reading her fiction, stay away from the new collection. No One Belongs Here More Than You will only embitter you further. It's not enough for July to write, direct, and star in a prize-winning film at Cannes and Sundance. Her recordings for Kill Rock Stars, stage performances, web projects... Maybe she's a terrible abstract painter, but I doubt it. Imagine sixteen tight, breathtaking doses of Me and You and Everyone We Know, the same deep compassion, anxious humor, and aching vulnerability. Cross Aimee Bender and Amy Hempel, and then cross you fingers July makes time for more fiction soon.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A poetic and penetrating observation of how people struggle to connect with one another in an isolating and contemporary world. Christine Jesperson is a lonely artist and "Eldercab" driver who uses her fantastical artistic visions to draw her aspirations and objects of desire closer to her. Richard Swersey (John Hawkes), a newly single shoe salesman and father of two boys, is prepared for amazing things to happen. But when he meets the captivating Christine, he panics. Life is not so oblique for Richard's six-year-old Robby, who is having a risqué Internet romance with a stranger, and his fourteen-year-old brother Peter who becomes the guinea pig for neighborhood girls — practicing for their future of romance and marriage.

Indie dramas seem to be about 1 thing these days. I am broken, make me whole; variously, I am an oddball, find me a compatible oddball. If you liked MaYaEWK, you might love this year's contender, The Go-Getter.

What a waste, because there are so many interesting, moving, original, even surprising stories waiting to be told.

So who is Miranda July and why was this movie so well received? She's a performance artist, you say? What does that even mean? She seems to be not very good at a lot of things-acting, writing, directing, music. Her debut film is an uneasy mixture of the cute and the creepy, often involving children. Like a little moppet who has an online discussion with someone about poop or the older guy who leaves dirty messages on his window for two teenage girls. July plays a, surprise!, performance artist who finds love with the guy from "Deadwood." While it has its moments, July's tone is self-conscious and cloying and her story shallow and uninvolving. She does have a cool name though.

Miranda July's awkward delivery is utter delight. It would seem that nearly every line delivered in this film is custom crafted overheat your brain and melt your heart. This film will definitely make you go back-and-forth forever.
