In Results, Trevor (Guy Pearce) is an Australian in Austin who owns the Power 4 Life fitness studio, living and breathing his own advertising mantras about self-improvement. The recently divorced, suddenly rich Danny (Kevin Corrigan, brilliant) is new in town and eager to buy what Power 4 Life is selling – if not the physical Results, then the life-changing concept behind them. Results is decidedly not Computer Chess, and — dreamlike bits aside — it boasts its own, very enjoyable stylistic flourishes in Justin Rice’s music and the retro, sideswipe edits. Above all, Results has the kind of genuine emotion that is so desperately absent from the genre: it’s romantic, it’s hilarious, it’s intelligent, it’s reticent and it’s weird. In other words, it’s everything you’d expect from an Andrew Bujalski film. (Sarah Salovaara)
