Critic Reviews for Bitch
[Palka's] come up with an intriguing premise, but doesn't quite have the nuance or the storytelling chops to offer an insightful satire.
A satirical scream of rage against patriarchal prerogatives, this feminist horror-comedy, written and directed by Ms. Palka, has a vicious edge that can stifle your laughter.
While it's refreshing to see a portrait of a woman's unraveling that doesn't romanticize mental illness, and that's actually directed by a woman, it's easy to wish Bitch probed a bit deeper into the protagonist's pre-dog life.
Unsatisfying in the pulpy sense suggested by its Midnight-section booking at Sundance, the pic's presumed political agenda never crystallizes sufficiently ...
Palka's fourth feature is as brash and as blunt as its title, more abrasive than amusing in its snarling takedown of patriarchal family politics.
