Andrew Bujalski, in my humble opinion, has created one good movie (Computer Chess) and (at least) 3 stinkers (Results, Support the Girls, and now, Beeswax.) The stinkers are all personified by dorky jokiness and mindless mugging in the style of the abysmal Seinfeld. Especially bad, or should I say sappy, are Maggie Hatcher (the non cripple) and Alex Karpovsky (the moronic suitor.)
I note that Bujalski's thesis advisor at Harvard was the (now deceased) Chantal Akerman. This seems totally amazing as their styles are a universe apart.

With Beeswax, director Andrew Bujalski delivers a prime example of the "mumblecore" movement within film. Like many other so-called "mumblecore" films, many viewers may find this painfully slow going and lacking in the plot department. So this film is definitely not for everyone! IMO, I found it very endearing and a great observational comedy of sorts. Also, fans of Girls take note, as Alex Karpovsky plays a very similar character here as he does on the HBO series.

didn't watch fully, couldn't get interested or perhaps it was my mood, looks like a drama w/some comedy, you make the call...

This isn't a terrible movie, but it's not a great one either. There are so many good examples of "indie" filmmaking that one needn't waste one's time with this. But if you choose, to, just be aware: NOTHING HAPPENS. This movie starts and stops at completely arbitrary points in the characters' lives. The most interesting plot development in the whole film takes place five minutes before it ends. I wanted to see more of how the characters deal with this development, as it's been hanging over their heads the entire film. But no...
