Melancholy and gloomy, if not entirely cold, this minor American indie earns its title and points for promise if not quite achievement. Caan is eminently watchable as Drew, a capable but uninspired student and bit-time mechanic living out of a Brooklyn industrial loft and stuck with his dear, incapacitated father; but one of an increasingly recognisable breed of directionless twenty-somethings on film. There's little story - Drew tries to fit a drugs and sex binge with a 'weird but cute' junkie around panic attacks about his father. Instead, first time director Schmidt attempts an impressionistic montage of blue moments, the best of which are compellingly stylish, but the sum of which lacks focus.
