Hedonistic playboy tries Platonic relationship in offbeat romantic romp.

East Bay Express

A rare example of the "decadent LA" movie, once thought extinct.

The resulting film has the integrity and the ugliness of the truth. It's not true because it's ugly; no, it's ugly because it's true.

A hard sell unless you've got an appetite for self-destruction. Haas makes Crazy Eyes surprisingly digestible.

Just because the main characters are in a constant state of depression and angst doesn't mean the audience should have to wallow in their misery as well.

There's no colorful Boschian absurdism here, only soulless banter and projectile vomit.

One of those exercises in masculine self-pity and glib misogyny that frustrates because of its shortsightedness.

Yes, it feels true. But why bother?

This slovenly, self-indulgent riff on Charles Bukowski-like fringe-livers has all of the naked harshness of Bukowski with none of the poetry.

Alison Willmore
Movieline

The film seems to aim for a gritty and real depiction of a drug- and drink-fueled not-quite romance, but it's in fact just your worst fears about the kinds of people who populate L.A. brought to ugly, misogynistic and sometimes maudlin life.

Film Journal International

The only audience likely to respond favorably to this vanity production about the slow, painful self-discovery of a rich, young Hollywood filmmaker would be other rich, young and screwed-up Hollywood filmmakers. But even they might be put off.

Sherman's feature turns out to be enamored of the kind of reality that gets left out of movies not because it's provocative or controversial, but because it isn't particularly interesting.

An appreciation that the pain is personal doesn't compensate for the picture's self-absorbed need to alienate.

The exuberant editing and puke-into-the-camera edginess indicate a film more interested in boasting of hell-raising than in exorcising it.

While the male characters are certainly not presented as models of enlightened behavior, their antics and crises are indulged in a manner not extended to their female counterparts.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Matching the cold, callused, cynicism of Bret Easton Ellis's LA Gen-X "Less Than Zero," "Crazy Eyes" is too much in love with its spoiled brat protagonist. It is still a guilty pleasure in the theater of cruelty.

These two non-lovers have real chemistry, and it's hard not to be intoxicated by the strange cocktail of watching them together, even as the story appears to be going nowhere.

Crazy Eyes feels a bit like a more light-hearted Leaving Las Vegas or a more energetic Somewhere -- comparisons that are meant as compliments.
