Lola Versus All The Awkwardness EVER

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Lola-Versus-posterIf you’re goal when you watch movies is to escape to a place where things are more amazing and wonderful than they are in everyday life, you might want to skip Lola Versus.  On the other hand, if you’re the type of person that likes to watch a train wreck in progress, this movie might be right up your ally.  I’m still not totally sure how I feel about the movie.  I guess at the end of the day I’m left shrugging my shoulders saying, “meh.”

Hamish+Linklater+Lola+Versus+2012+Tribeca+BCHwi_Txh5alThe side of me that appreciates a good one-liner and the ability to capture the feeling of reality in a film really did want to like the movie.  I’ve already quoted the line “Who puts your sentences together? Your brain is like a bad DJ” to my sisters and will probably use it again in the future because it tickles my fancy.  And I honestly have no trouble believing that some people would make and in fact have made the same exact decisions as those shown in this movie, like *spoilers* doing your ex-fiancée’s best friend and then cheating on him with your ex-fiancée.

Photography By Myles AronowitzThe main character, Lola (I’m sure you’ve guessed that part already from the title), makes some truly terrible decisions though.  I’m talking hard-to-watch-out-of-shear-awkwardness type decisions.  If you can’t handle that ‘cause you feel embarrassed for the character or something, Lola is probably going to embarrass the hell out of you.  Seriously, *spoilers again* if a guy I just met was ever to sing horribly to me as we had sex I think I’d be forced suffocate him with a pillow.  Or at the very least stop everything we were doing and walk out on him without explanation.  I guess when it comes down to it BTs I can’t in good conscience recommend this movie to you even if I got a fun new catch phrase out of it.
