The Station Agent (Movie Review)

The Station Agent: A mostly pointless film which has little to say but says it well. The character of Finn is quite stereotypical but well protrayed. The other two characters are awful and a little bit unimaginative, so much so that one is thankful when they aren’t around on screen. While this might be the kind of film some people enjoy, I didn’t particularly fancy it. Watching “an unikely friendship between three troubled individuals” isn’t my idea of good cinema. The writing was inconsistent, so I have to admit it was brilliant in parts but somehow falls short in the end. Cinematography was slick but unimaginative. An uninspired film, but a worthy attempt.
