The obviously improvised, repetitive dialogue sounds like it was recorded from an adjoining bathroom stall. Interesting, albeit obvious, choices for a drunk scene — until it becomes clear that no, this is how director Nathan Silver intends to shoot his entire movie… Carl Kranz, as a possibly autistic boy enamored of Natalia, offers his scenes some heart. But "Soft in the Head’’ is drab, ramshackle stuff — up in everyone’s face, and finding very little there.
