    First half is madcap dynamite, once it starts getting more serious it bogs down a bit.

    Despite a handful of moments of inspired comedic brilliance, this shoestring-budget independent comedy-drama never quite nails it the way it could have. When the film sticks to its humorous roots, it works relatively well, but, when it attempts to wax philosophically, it becomes self-important and loses focus. That's unfortunate. because the underlying premise that launches the story should have been sufficient enough to carry the film. However, as it progresses and starts to chart other more serious territory, it becomes scattered, preachy and, at times, hard to follow. Director Kirill Mikhanovsky shows a lot of promise through this production, but he clearly needs to refine his work in future offerings.

    Watching people argue, shout, and scream under duress is not entertaining

    A little interesting if you're in the mood, but wouldn't highly recommend.

    I'm just not sure where I am with this movie. The filming is extraordinary. But I was lost for a good part of the film. No doubt, a master is at work here. I just wish he would have brought more of us along.

    Tight script and great characters. A gold standard B movie. "Tremors" by the sea and worthy of cult status.

    Not sure what to make of this rather chaotic picture... the lead character would likely be fired from his job and the subject of lawsuits if he really acted like he does in this film... but the film keeps itself moving along at a decent pace. Some good performances help as well.

    It is not often you see such a fabulous film. It reminded me of the greatest films I saw in the past, directed by F. Fellini, F. Truffaut and similar masterpieces in that league. The film is flowing and very easy and enjoyable to watch. However it is very serious and deep, in the lighthearted, witty, tragicomic way we get very important, crucial messages delivered straight to our hearts and brains. That is the film one would want to watch again and again. Every detail is a jewel. "Give Me Liberty" will linger long after you see it and will stay with you. True masterpiece. Don't miss! Highly recommend.
