"A SUBLIME PIECE OF INDIE FILM MAGIC" - ONE FILM FAN

 

‟A quietly fierce, dramatically potent, and heartbreakingly palpable exercise in what could very well be one of the most impactful inward looks at the realities found within the celebrity mindset

…and when we look at the tragedies like Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Williams, et al, it’s an all-too-real portrait that what we see on the surface as “the perfect life” they lead isn’t always everything it appears to be.

Still of Stella Velon The Critic

Velon brings charm, an undeniably innocent allure, and a deeply grounded sense of vulnerability in her role as the actress, a fresh face on the scene WHO’S COMING OFF A RECENT AWARDS WIN FOR A PERFORMANCE…

VELON JUST MAKES YOU EXPERIENCE EVERY LITTLE IOTA OF JOY, THEN INITIAL UNEASINESS, THEN FULL-OUT ANGER AND PANIC THE CHARACTER GOES THROUGH TO SUCH A STIRRING DEGREE, A GORGEOUS PERFORMANCE WITHOUT QUESTION.

 

SMYTH MOST CERTAINLY DOES A FANTASTIC JOB

IT’S A POWERFUL, ALBEIT DISTURBINGLY ANGERING, ATTITUDE PERMEATING THE CHARACTER, AND SMYTH VERY MUCH ENGAGES YOU WITH HIS PERFORMANCE…

‟…an interesting and provocative statement made through a wonderfully clever narrative... Steeped in emotionally-charged gravitas throughout….

‟In total, “The Critic” is a sublime piece of indie film magic, currently on what I can only believe should be a hugely successful festival run, that I honestly hope not only gains the awards it deserves, but perhaps acts as some small form of wake-up call to us as the public…”
