Critic Reviews for Benjamin

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (34) | Rotten (4)

  • From this delicate premise, "Benjamin" wrings a lot of warmly perceptive, occasionally acidic humor.

  • If this all seems a bit meta, Benjamin is grounded by its very sweet love story.

    March 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Under the satire, there's an authentic sense of emotional uncertainty.

    March 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Amstell's generosity in mining his own anxieties about celebrity, intimacy and the blunt desire to be loved is proof that pain can be productive.

    March 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • What's best about the film, though, is its concession to tenderness.

    March 15, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Amstell's career has always been predicated on his own existential crises, but as I'm one of those who is quite into that, I rather loved this film, not that it matters. Does anything?
