Critic Reviews for Bitch

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

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.

Displays Palka's unique power as an actress while simultaneously showing her weaknesses as a writer.

By its end, Bitch focuses as much on what it means to wake up to the frustrations of an American dream coming to pieces as it is a fierce indictment of them.

Bitch takes a challenging premise and turns it into the smartest left-of-field take on mental health issues since Frank.

July 21, 2017 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

There's much to admire with Bitch's absurdist deconstruction of patriarchal family politics, though more streamlining might have helped the attempted emotional catharsis.
