I must have watched a completely different movie from the other reviewer, but I could not stand this film. The main character is so abominably unlikable and annoying that it's hard to see the point - sure, pretentious hipster wastrels are a reasonable target for satire, but you have to let us out of his insufferable orbit a bit or else we can't breathe. And when the movie's plot (such as it is) centers around this schlub's relationship with his girlfriend, an attractive, up-and-coming lawyer, it robs that plot of any motive power when we can't figure out why anyone, let alone her, would be with this guy. Agonizing to get through.

Erik Sparrow is one of the lucky ones. He's got a good job. He's in a stable relationship. He lives in one of the greatest cities in the world. Does he deserve it? Probably not. He's not too bright. He's not very attractive. He's not at all ambitious. He's chubby and he's always complaining. And when his girlfriend Jody proposes to him, he doesn't even have the good sense to accept her offer. He'll never find a woman like this again. Instead, Erik bumbles his way around the issue, offering one excuse after another for not getting married. When Jody dumps him and starts seeing an old flame from college, Erik tries to win her back. When he fails, he attempts to date other women, but the results are disastrous.

Anti-hipster satire needs a lot more biteReviewed bylotdw-1Vote: 1/10
Total auteur cinema, in the best, non-pretentious way possible. This is a film that never takes itself too seriously, yet throws down on some serious themes and ideas. A schlub who can't catch a break suddenly turns vampiric and kinda cool. Kinda. Not just Onur's performance, but every character, even the minors, are totally on it. They bounce off each other effortlessly. I'm normally bugged by neurotic characters, as they usually feel forced and rehearsed. Not Onur. His rhythms and surprisingly-apt observations come effortlessly, like he's abandoned the script for what he feels is true to the moment. It's honest to the core. Self-depricating and rude and hilarious. And there's blood and sex and internet dating. It's rough around the edges in the right ways. I have no idea how it was pulled off, but what feels like a colossal mess of ideas comes together so cohesively. It just clicks. It moves forward and doesn't really care if you can keep up. It may be the first film of the year that I really love.
And really, we're all afraid of becoming Michael Douglas.
Great fun. Got not too much to add to the other reviews but I thought I would add a good one to balance out the humour failures from the 'auteur director expert' ones. I enjoyed the dialogue which appeared to be add libbing. OK nothing too original as far as plot was concerned but snappy dialogue and no holds barred on what a sad bunch of w anchors we men are. Considering what high ratings some of the god awful blockbusters get on IMDb this nice little indie deserves more appreciation and a wider audience. It may not be Brain Dead but I enjoyed it far more than Prometheus, which I watched last night on double speed. With its rent-a-plot full of holes and the cast of stereotypes. Will now get Onur Tukel's next movie Applesauce to watch.
