Critic Reviews for Ape

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (1)

  • This unnerving character study by Joel Potrykus embraces the anxieties and neuroses of its protagonist, but despite the dire subject matter it manages to be fractiously playful.

  • While the delivery isn't the smoothest, this portrait of a sociopath comic still hits its keenly-observed marks.

  • A biting, sometimes droll look at the allure of humiliation, "Ape" appears simple, but its underlying machinery is joltingly clever.

  • Potrykus offers a variety of intriguing suggestions about the relationship between laughter and violence, performance and destruction.

  • Unfortunately, the film, particularly the first half, feels incredibly amateurish and sluggish, and creaks along like nails on the chalkboard until eventually finding a workable rhythm.

    August 6, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Slightly psychotic... lets us fill in the character's blank slate, possibly, probably, with our own psychoses, be they great or moderate.
