Danny, a recently divorced middle-aged man, has just come into a lot of money, though it has made little difference in solving his misery. On a bit of a whim, Danny ventures into a local gym, where he meets fitness-guru/owner Trevor, who convinces Danny that the key to finding his happiness is through physical and mental fitness. With Kat, one of the gym's top trainers, working one-on-one with Danny, these three individuals lives become tangled both professionally and personally, when such emotions as longing, loneliness, and love/desire become a part of the equation. Andrew Bujalki's Results is a playful and intimate look into modern day alienation, with both Trevor, Danny, and Kat, all being indivdiuals who whether they consciously know it or not, are looking for something to make themselves feel complete. Whether it be physical self-improvement, service work in the form of a trainer, or an abundance of cash in Danny's case, Results is truly a story of three individuals trying to find something that completes them and makes them happy. I especially liked the attention to detail, in Results, with the homes of these individuals, providing a visual representation of what they are missing in their personal lives. While Danny's gigantic home is barren, Kat lives with a roommate who seems to be very much in love with her significant other, as Bujalski comments on these character's isolation and loneliness through the environment which they inhabit. While probably Andrew Bujalki's least interesting film, Results is a film that still manages to be light-hearted but poigant, a quality that makes Bujalki one of the more interesting indie contemporary filmmakers. Centered in the world of physical fitness and self-improvement, Andrew Bujalki's Results uses this world to comment on the neverending quest for happiness, as all individuals attempt to find something that fills the void in their souls that makes them happy.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
