generation Um… (★ Empire Review)

GenerationUmSquareWith a title like that (the Germans suggestively retitled it Threesome), Keanu Reeves would have to be in it – at least, twenty years ago. Today, he looks miscast and miserable – Sad Keanu: The Movie? – as a lost soul who hooks up with two bored New York girls (Adelaide Clemens and Bojana Novakovic), all of them going nowhere existentially, dramatically or cinematically. “Um…” is right: Mark Mann’s film has nothing to say, but takes 90-odd minutes to say it. ★
