Critic Reviews for Bitter Melon

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • The movie grinds to a halt in its final third as the characters talk things out, which might be helpful in life but in drama tends to belabor the obvious, as well as offer an easy exit.

  • An intriguing and absorbing independent film...

    December 4, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Domestic violence and black comedy don't seem a natural match, but to an impressive degree "Bitter Melon" pulls off their shotgun marriage.

    May 18, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Bold, heartfelt and refreshingly unpredictable.

    December 20, 2018 | Rating: 8.45/10 | Full Review…
  • Only a brilliant and gifted director can manage to make grueling topics like domestic abuse mesh well with dry humor and dramedy.

    November 3, 2018 | Rating: 8 | Full Review…
  • Mendoza adroitly sneaks in other messages, such as thoughtful discussions of both racism and effeminacy in the gay community. The cast is uniformly strong with Schneider particularly appealing as Declan, the perhaps-not-so-moral center of the family.
