Three Back Yards was a disappointment. Actress Edie Falco is the only redeeming factor in this movie. She gave her usual great acting performance. I started out with four star in mind, then this movie rapidly imploded. Two & a half stars is generous. No main characters. No real resolutions to the situations. The film makers should have just picked the day in the life of three random people in a small town & made a documentary instead of a drama. A time waster. Why did I I watch the entire movie. It had no promise of improvement.

When I picked up the DVD I was hoping for a low-budget, but quality film from US independent cinema. I was to be hugely disappointed. The film is boring, because it tells the mundane stories of very uninteresting people. Throughout the film I was hoping for something dramatic, or at least engaging, to happen. That moment never came. It baffles me how this film were positively reviewed by some film critics. Yawn....

Just never went anywhere. It was nice to see views of Long Island.

Unrelentingly monotonous, intentionally obscure. Goddam all the artists who have tried to make suburbia elemental, from Cheever to Carver, right on down to this poseur, Eric Mendelsohn. Edie Falco owed him a favor, having starred in one of his pics early on in her career, but lord knows what the others were thinking when they agreed to be in this symphony played on one sour note. I have a high tolerance, and there are few films which I simply have to eject (and I've seen some lulus). This one? Not a qualm in the world. Why the second star, you ask? (Some nice cinematography).

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Rather a choppy offering, but made worthwhile by a few of the characters, namely the woman in the blue dress. I was simply awestruck by constant politeness and eternal positivity. She did not seem of this world!

Minimalist indie. If you are in the mood, you might like it. I was not and didn't see why it got an award.

Edie Falco played a lady who is uncomfortable yet too open and frank about her attitude - Probably few actresses could play the role as well as she did. Lots of discomfort on her face throughout.

Movie is for art house veterans only.
