Some Velvet Morning (2013)
Critic Consensus: Some Velvet Morning marks writer-director Neil LaBute's welcome return to the mode of challenging chamber piece, but this misanthropic two-hander is too slight to produce the same bite as the filmmakers' best works.

Critic Reviews for Some Velvet Morning
The look of Some Velvet Morning remains clean and flat, the decor [is] mostly hotel-room neutral. The major visual idea is to have Eve's red dress and lipstick stand out against a monochromatic backdrop: effective in itself, but not enough.
With Some Velvet Morning, LaBute returns to the provocative style that made his name.
Though LaBute wrote this for the screen, I mistakenly decided that it must have originated onstage... because the oblique, heavily freighted dialogue seems too elegant and artful for a medium dominated by hacks.
A sad example of what sometimes happens when a writer of gripping stage plays controls his own independent movie to his own selfish, labored self-satisfaction.
I came away from this malevolent exercise with the sense that these two add up to little more than the sum of their awfulness.
Audience Reviews for Some Velvet Morning
Drags on and on. Not sure if I was relieved or annoyed about the true ending.
