Reel Critic

‘Flawless’ delves into what love is

Charlie Bauman of Glendale works as a janitor at a Glendale printing

firm.

I liked how “Flawless” developed themes dealing with what real love is

and how kindness can overcome the most difficult situations. I also liked

the way the director showed the psychological complexity in the

relationships of the main characters.

Distracting attention from these good things were several poorly

developed subplots.

But the major reason I ended up not enjoying this movie was that the

circumstances of the two main characters’ lives were depessing. Not even

an upbeat ending could erase that feeling. However, this movie did raise

issues that are important for me to think about.
