Me and You and Everyone We Know - Directed by Miranda July
By Noel DixThis directorial debut from Miranda July is incredibly touching, sometimes moving and often funny, but occasionally you feel guilty for laughing at a precious child for having unsuspecting yet rather kinky cyber-sex. When you meet July through her character of Christine though it all sort of falls into place and makes sense, as you are introduced to someone who enjoys doing what she knows will make her feel better about herself. She has goals and awkwardly tries to achieve them, even if it means being uncomfortably forward with a shoe salesman (John Hawkes) she doesn't even know. At times, this film feels a little self-indulgent, as July is present for her own show, using every camera angle and film moment she's ever dreamt of, similar to Zach Braff's Garden State. Her vision is quite beautiful though, as this movie pops off the screen with colour and emotion, helped along with a fantastic cast stumbling through some awkward story lines. Hipsters have already embraced this film and are likely developing crushes on Miranda July as we speak. The DVD is lacking, with only deleted scenes of Robby taking a poop in the backyard (both short and extended versions), as well as a weird moment where Sylvie appears to develop a crush on a child underwear model. Still, touching moments draped in the beginnings of true love make Me and You and Everyone We Know a worthwhile watch. (Alliance Atlantis)
