'Charlie Countryman' Review

"I'm going to be seeing Charlie Countryman," I told a colleague the other day.

"Wow," he said, "that was the worst movie I saw at Sundance this year."

I had heard similar things from other folks who had sat through The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman at the festival in January and just plain hated it. Apparently, a few things have changed since then -- the title's been shortened, and there used to be a narration from John Hurt -- but I found the new version to be ... not good, but at least kinda curious. But, again, not good. My review is up at Paste.
