      Audience Member Excellent first feature by Indie Spirit Nominee, Chris Mason Johnson. Real and moving story about friends in NYC, 10 yrs. after graduating. Great performances (Tom Sadowsky from Wild and News Room) and beautiful cinematography. Well worth a view! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member for a wolfe production, this was really well done. Nice, complex, no one left out. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member The characters are to bland. I watched the whole thing and felt hung over.

      Lisa Kennedy Denver Post The director and co-writer Ishmael Chawla never make their characters venal. Rated: 2/4 Jul 3, 2009 Full Review Kenneth Turan Los Angeles Times Johnson provides them with plenty of challenges and reasons to question their values, priorities and goals. Rated: 4/5 May 15, 2009 Full Review Simon Abrams Slant Magazine There's something uniquely irritating about the kind of too-serious-for-its-own-good alternative-lifestyle drama subheading that Chris Mason Johnson's The New Twenty neatly falls under. Rated: 1/4 Mar 23, 2009 Full Review Don Willmott Writer/director Chris Mason Johnson is a sharp observer of urban life, and his story moves along so briskly that you won't spend much time considering the fact that it should have been set in 1999 Rated: 3.5/5 May 26, 2009 Full Review Cole Smithey Co-writer/director Chris Mason Johnson's amateur debut effort could be credited with creating a new genre of pretentious triteness tailored to define of the pop slang word "Redonkulous." Rated: D Mar 25, 2009 Full Review Avi Offer NYC Movie Guru Has interesting characters and a terrific cast, but feels somewhat contrived, bland and lacking an authentic emotional resonance. Rated: 5.85/10 Mar 22, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews
