Once ★★½

Nice enough, not quite as affecting as I was expecting given the strong word-of-mouth reputation. Admittedly, a lot of good graces went out of the window when I was presented with the type of busker who doesn't just sing his songs but insists on outright BELLOWING them at you. Thankfully, however, this isn't the tale of the whole film, or all of the performances. Nevertheless, a lot of enjoyment is going to boil down to how you feel about generic singer/songwriter acoustic-y stuff. As you can tell, I can take it or leave it.
