The whole endeavour ends up feeling fussy and clever rather than incisive and nuanced — especially when a late twist seriously jeopardises plausibility.
While The Only Living Boy in New York looks nice (it was shot on film by veteran DP Stuart Dryburgh), it's an unabashed fake — glib and movie-ish in a grating way, with lots of prefab soulfulness and none of the texture or rough edges of life.
This is a movie full of characters you would walk away from at a cocktail party, engaging in the flattest brand of smart banter imaginable.
