125. The Puffy Chair (C+)

The Puffy Chair: This is a decent little movie about a couple that goes on a road trip to pick up a chair as a surprise birthday present for one of their parents...where a lot of bad things happen on the way. Aesthetically, it's one of the forerunners of mumblecore, which has never impressed me. Basically, it looks like a student film, only with better acting and writing. In terms of story, I think the film gives a little to much credit to the brother that is picked up along the way. He commits an action late in the movie that means a lot of their journey has been wasted. This is played as an important moment, but the net result on the couple's relationship doesn't appear to be much. They all cry together a little...and then the only possible outcome happens a few scenes later.
