Tiny Furniture : Could be the worst movie I have ever seen

Could be the worst movie I have ever seen

I knew nothing about the movie and watched it on-demand at home. Could be the worst movie I have ever seen. It was like Seinfeld in that it was a movie about nothing, but it was not funny. None of the characters are likable. They are all so pathetic and self-absorbed. This one isn't worth the dollar at the red box

There is no one more pretentious than a film snob

That's right, I'm still using that joke, dusted off an oldie. They don't call 'em classics for nothing.

Exactly clerz, Lena Dunham seems to be a privileged New Yorker with a successful artist mother and lots of money & connections. The End.

Re: Could be the worst movie I have ever seen

Great, another in the endless line of threads in which somebody calls some movie "the worst movie ever." I'm pretty sure if you look up "Citizen Kane," "Casablanca," what-have-you, there's somebody claiming it's TWME. Oh, it's rainy out. WORST DAY EVER! That taco wasn't amazing. WORST MEAL EVER! Breathing is so tiresome. WORST HUMAN NECESSITY EVER!

Plus, nobody here seems to get that this movie was actually making fun of self-indulgent mumblecore-type indie "hipster cinema" about aimless, self-pitying slacker characters. (You will note that the writer-director-star allows herself to look onscreen like a totally unattractive, pathetic, whiny loserit's hardly a vanity project.) I didn't think it was great, but it was pretty dang funny.

Re: Could be the worst movie I have ever seen

this movie was absolutely horrible. I watched it for free because it was on-demand in the free movies section and I felt like I wanted some money back.

I got the impression everyone involved was like HEY, wouldn't it be cool to see us in a movie, like doing movie things. Haha, that would be cooool!

People say oh it was shot cheaply, well I don't care how much money was spent on a movie, if its good its good, if its horrible its horrible, and this one is horrible.

There is no thought put into this movie whatsoever.

Re: Could be the worst movie I have ever seen

I was leery about this movie because of the uber-hype SXSW gives EVERYTHING, but when I saw it on TV a couple of days ago I thought it was pleasant and inoffensive. A great movie? No way. Would I watch it again? Maybe, if there was nothing else on. Self-indulgent? To be sure. The best thing I can say about it is that it was kind of a female "Napoleon Dynamite," which isn't so bad.

Re: Could be the worst movie I have ever seen

I agree, why did Napoleon Dynamite get so much love but not this movie? Most of the complaints people have about Tiny Furniture could easily be said about Napoleon Dynamite. Both are odd, strange movies but quiet gems in their own right. The end of Tiny Furniture lacked a bit of heart I think. I wish Aura would cry one, subtle tear for the loss of her young adulthood and be done with it, but she didn't.

Re: Could be the worst movie I have ever seen

I didn't enjoy this film. At all. But what I can attribute to it, is that it has several believable characters. Albeit, all of them are obnoxious. If Dunham was out to mock or remove the veil regarding people of this nature, she succeeded. If her goal was to make a likable, fun, enjoyable film, she failed miserably.

Each interaction made me cringe. I didn't enjoy watching terrible things happen to her. And each self indulgent, short sighted, line of dialogue had me asking the cosmos, 'why has humanity allowed such people to exist?'

Much like another small indie film, 'The Exploding Girl', only about 5 minutes of it feels like actual character development (i.e. enjoyable). The rest is watching over-privileged youth mumble about their lives and prance around in the upper echelon of society in an uncoordinated manner.

For children of wealthy individuals with expensive educations, they all seem very oblivious to the world around them and how much different they are than the rest of the world's population.

I would love for one of the characters in these type of films to say something to the effect of, "why am I complaining about my loft that costs $3500 a month while a very large portion of the world's population doesn't have running water or central air, let alone, a Starbucks on every block?"

Like I previously stated, I didn't enjoy Dunham's film, but the fact that she made a feature length film at such a young age, is a very large achievement.

Re: Could be the worst movie I have ever seen

OK.not the worst movie I've ever seen, but truly: very very bad.

I was very embarrassed for the protagonist. I didn't know who she was when it came on the Sundance Channel tonightbut I intuited that she had also written and directed this movie because it was filled with self-absorption and lack of objectivity about herself. Like horrible lines she wrote for other people to say like she has gorgeous breasts like a 1950s movie star, and having herself walk around without her pants a lot, which was gross because she is about 40 lbs overweight and pasty, out of shape, and unattractive. And the kind of people her character is friends with would never be friends with herI don't mean to be unkind, but the people who she hangs with are out of her league, and it's not clear what they would see in her because she's morose and not in an interesting way, the way her friends are. And the sex scene was one of the most humiliating things I have ever seen. And not in an artful way. Just in Lena has really bad self-esteem problems way and it's not cool that she played that out in her movie. Gross sad pathetic desperate movie. Ugh!

Re: Could be the worst movie I have ever seen

Damn. Is that all you took away from the movie?

Re: Could be the worst movie I have ever seen

Oh it was not the "worst movie you have ever seen" - don't get nuts. Jesus.
