The Future (2011) at 366 Weird Movies

Miranda July’s debut feature, Me and You and Everyone We Know, is the kind of film I was inspired by in high school but now doubt my own feelings about- I expect I’ll like it less watching it now after my own tastes and outlook have changed. But still I was interested in her follow-up The Future, a bleak tale of a couple on the brink of individual nervous breakdowns as they await their adoption of ailing cat Paw-Paw, who narrates some segments. It’s bogged down in its own unnecessary quirks and clumsy screenplay, but overall I liked it. Probably because it’s so sad.
