John Anderson

No one's a cliche; no one speaks dialogue the viewer could have muttered a beat or two ahead of the movie; no one hews to a mode of behavior fabricated to explain away his or her irrational behavior.

Polley is a detail-oriented director who can get a little lost dazzling us with the little things.

Polley (who's been an actress herself) never judges these people she's created. Instead, she depicts the giddy, fleeting and illusory nature of new love, and lets us get caught up in it, too.

Williams lives and breathes her role, Kirby is charming and real, and you actually start to ache and empathize with Rogen - the emptiness and heartache he conveys when Lou and Margot finally thrash things out is crushing.

Under the Radar

Sexually charged, frank, and relatable, Take This Waltz is a bittersweet observation of adult romance.

See, this is why comedians shouldn't be allowed in a serious movie! Very slow moving--nothing in the first ten minutes made any sense whatsoever. You… More
