It's this memory-as-identity obviation that gives Secret Life its intermittent unease, reaffirming that long-held illusions are indeed reality, and that erasing them recasts the self. And it's this existential gerrymandering that's most compelling.
We hate to say it, but we can't find anywhere to view this film.
What are people saying?
What are critics saying?
Startlingly original comedy-drama.
The well-structured film goes beyond issues of sexuality, giving nuanced consideration to broader questions of love and loss, family and friendship, trust, lies and deception.
A movie that grows better by the minute.
His Secret Life's languid pace and general aimlessness keep getting in the way.
Solid and engrossing melodrama.
Even the graceful ending, one that lifts the film a notch, is startling. But at the very least, His Secret Life will leave you thinking.
It's a soapy, simplistic, but surprisingly affecting ambisexual melodrama that plays a little like Pedro Almodovar without the surreal frills.
