It’s rather hard to be cavalier about someone else’s problems when they take them so seriously and so personally.
Oh wait, no it isn’t. Especially when they’re the types of problems found in Person to Person, which might as well come with a checklist so viewers can mark off every bad indie trope it contains. The film bills itself as a more eloquent mumblecore offering about a series of inconsequential stories about an ensemble cast of New Yorkers (of course that’s where it takes place) while betting that we’ll care about them by the end. In the end, do we? Maybe, but just not in the way Person to Person wants us to.
