Joanna Hogg United Kingdom, 2010

Yang's rating of the film Archipelago

Captures upper class futility and anxiety, it's search for purpose and meaning. Can understand certain complaints about the film being boring (though the film's distance and lack of eventfulness are crucial) but I don't agree with any criticisms regarding the middle-upper class family subject, of which Hogg is overwhelmingly critical and draws much from. Some brilliant moments of outbursts and awkwardness.
