Review of Trust

Trust (1990)
5/10
It's so determined to be odd, eventually indifference sets in...
24 September 2005
Pregnant, unwed teen (Adrienne Shelly) falls unexpectedly into relationship with brilliant-but-stubborn young man (Martin Donovan) who's on the fast track to nowhere. You gotta credit director Hal Hartley with fashioning a bizarre, yet puzzlingly amusing scenario cast with unknown actors who tap right into his offbeat spirit. Still, trippy, edgy comedies like this often pummel their one-note to death, and the film's incidental charms are nearly overshadowed by the filmmaker's inherent smugness. The plot is practically non-existent, but fans of quirky dark humor will find a lot to cherish here. ** from ****
