Somebody Up There Likes Me

USA 2012
75 min

Thirty-five years in the life of Max, his best friend Sal and a woman they both adore, Lyla. The trio stumble through mandatory but seemingly unfulfilling entanglements, at weddings, funerals, hospitals, eateries, divorce courts and the tool shed. A deadpan fable about time sneaking up on and swerving right around us. Max is visually stuck in his late twenties, while all his relationships and acquaintances grow up around him. Not invested enough in the disruptive events of his own life to be considered a postmodern Dorian Gray, Max, as played completely deadpan by Keith Poulson, shrugs off whatever roadblocks he places in his own lifepath: failed marriages, dead-end jobs, constant rejection and betrayal, and abrupt deaths. (Mark Peranson)
