Total Film - 04/01/2008 3 stars out of 5 -- "Korine has come up with a surreal, absurdist fantasy about fame and faith. It's every bit as idiosyncratic as his earlier movies, but more obviously open-hearted and less given to sensationalism."
Sight and Sound - 04/01/2008
"[W]hat's most striking, and most surprising, about MISTER LONELY in the context of Korine's other work is the uplifting experience it offers..."
New York Times - 05/02/2008
"MISTER LONELY is enigmatic, its moods and meanings sometimes elusive, but nearly every frame is an image of arresting clarity and beauty."
Los Angeles Times - 05/09/2009
"Harmony Korine revives his signature surrealism in MR. LOVELY....Full of arresting, indelible images..."
After the success of indies GUMMO and JULIEN DONKEY-BOY in the late 1990s, writer-director Harmony Korine's follow-up is this dramedy. Diego Luna (Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN) stars as a Michael Jackson impersonator who follows a dead ringer for Marilyn Monroe (Samantha Morton) to a Scottish commune filled with celebrity lookalikes. Cinema legends Werner Herzog and Anita Pallenberg costar.
A Michael Jackson impersonator falls for a beautiful Marilyn Monroe lookalike who suggests he move to a commune of impersonators in the Scottish Highlands. At the seaside castle, Michael discovers everyone preparing for the commune's first-ever gala - Abe Lincoln, Little Red Riding Hood, the Three Stooges, the Queen, the Pope, Madonna, Buckwheat, Sammy Davis, Jr...and also Marilyn's daughter Shirley Temple and her possessive husband Charlie Chaplin.
