The Future

I was fundamentally disappointed with this movie.  I loved the first film Miranda July wrote/directed/starred in (“Me and You and Everyone We Know”), which was # 13 on my 2005 movie list.  So, I was really excited to see her sophomore effort.  But it was too inaccessible to me.  I saw it at the SFIFF and she spoke afterward; that helped me to understand how deeply personal this film was to her and how vulnerable she made herself on screen.  However, the symbols were too remote (too deeply personal) to access easily.  In the end, it felt like she had given me her diary to read but it was written in her own secret language.
