Bitch

Critics Consensus

Bitch has an intriguing premise and a strong start that hints at greater things for writer-director-star Marianna Palka, even if its reach ultimately exceeds its grasp.

  • The father is unsympathetic, the kids are uninteresting, and the sister-in-law is unnecessary, so the mother's absence from her own story becomes glaring.

  • [Palka's] come up with an intriguing premise, but doesn't quite have the nuance or the storytelling chops to offer an insightful satire.

    Nov 10, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • An intriguing premise becomes a bit of a dog's dinner in Marianna Palka's dark indie parable.

  • It's an interesting concept, but the characters are thin and nothing here feels insightful.
