Movie Info

Brian Shoaf's directorial debut "Aardvark" follows Josh (Quinto), a troubled man who has lived in the shadow of his brother for so long he starts seeing that shadow everywhere. After experiencing a series of hallucinations involving his brother Craig (Hamm)--an actor, and the star of a popular TV drama--Josh places himself in the care of Emily (Slate), a young therapist. Emily is forced to wade deeper and deeper into Josh's imaginary world, and along the way forms her own obsession with his famous brother. While Emily and Craig explore a potentially disastrous attraction, Josh begins a relationship with a young woman, Hannah, who might be his soul mate--if only he could be sure she exists.

Critic Reviews for Aardvark

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

As the story develops, the film seems more wishy-washy than pointedly ambiguous.

The sort of movie that gets by with its unpredictable where-is-this-going vibe for about a half-hour or so, but it becomes apparent at a certain point that the set-up is pretty much all there is.

Granted, there may be some problematic road traversed in regards to mental health issues and power dynamics, but the talent involved is too great to deny Aardvark at least one viewing.

It's not a bad movie, but it's so minor, it all but drifts away.

May 4, 2017 | Full Review…

Starring the typically delightful Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto and John Hamm, Aardvark, directed by Brian Shoaf completely squanders their collective talents with a astoundingly dumb film.

April 28, 2017 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

" The script falls flat and lets down an emerging actress who deserves better."
