Be prepared for what will prove to be far and away the longest 83 minutes you'll spend watching a movie this year.
It's a case of truth in advertising.
A grating protagonist alone does not a bad film make, but the episodic, unsatisfying Lemon revels in purposeful nails-on-a-chalkboard unlikability.
[Lemon] has some legitimately peculiar traits, and moments that flash with true absurdity. But there's a flatness in the end-result. The quirky is utterly predictable.
Bravo and Gelman find a transcendent absurdity in the mundane that's awkwardly enchanting. It's more tart than sweet, but deliciously weird nonetheless.
One of the more original films in recent memory.
If Lemon is about one thing (and I'm not sure it is), it's about the way people demean each other to make themselves feel better.
Lemon doesn't take the easy road in any aspect of its being. It's a confrontational film willing to put the audience in a series of uncomfortable situations that only grow with each passing moment.
"Lemon" is one of the funniest, most delightfully strange movies I've seen in the past ten years. I can't wait to see what Janicza Bravo does next.
There are more cringe-inducing touches of grossness than I need, and it undermines the assured writing and character development in service of easy potty jokes.
Funny things happen in the film, but they don't really seem funny because of the way they are packaged with anger, loneliness, jealousy and even racism. Rather than being funny, it is a toxic emotional cocktail.
Sour comedy-drama about a creep.
