Shopgirl Belated

ShopgirlHow SHOPGIRL could’ve been infinitely better:

1. Revise the last names. Buttersfield is just plain dumb.

2. Check the comedy. Schwartzman and Wilson’s broad approach creates an uncomfortable contrast against low key Martin-Danes.

3. Infuse reality. Any graphic artist going to Citiwalk for inspiration deserves to have his arms cut off.

4. Dump the narration. Martin’s cheesy diatribe throws a wet sock on the film’s sometimes endearing, sometimes bittersweet moments.

And so, overall, I’d tepidly recommend the film as appropriate for a lazy afternoon when there’s nothing else on the tube but SCARY MOVIE 10 and BRIDEZILLAS.
