Critics reviews

Beyond a tacked-on feel-better (if not feel-good) ending that Roth would never pen in a million years, the film honors The Dying Animal’s somber and bitter critique of the male fetishization of female beauty. It patiently stays with scenes both tender and uncomfortable by trusting the strength of the source material as well as its actors’ subtle instincts.
