Golden Exits Directed by Alex Ross Perry
Perry’s pugnacious dialogue has a lyrical quality, the careful elocution of unnatural yet fluid lines that can only come from the mind of a writer, but it’s the quiet moments that are most pregnant with negativity. The saddest lines are the ones never said. The desires are unspoken, and they will remain unfulfilled.

This is the kind of movie that compels viewers to disclose what sorts of problems they consider important. I’m at a point in my life where, for entirely subjective, personal reasons, I couldn’t really relate to any of the characters—except maybe Gwen, who has zero patience for everyone’s b.s. even as she dishes out heaping plates of her own. . . . But your mileage may vary, as they say. Naomi tells you up front what kind of movie you’re about to see, and she’s not wrong.

It’s a movie full of people talking around, and occasionally even about, their little problems. They talk and talk and talk, but on the screen their foibles come to seem momentous. For about a decade, Perry has been collaborating with the cinematographer Sean Price Williams. Their visual style in Golden Exits has you constantly sensing that the film is on the verge of grand tragedy, even though its action proceeds mumble by mumble through micromelodrama.
