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.
