Critic Reviews for Black Bear

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (2)

  • It's a film that doesn't just reinvent itself so much as deconstruct its entire existence in a way that's breathtaking and wildly entertaining.

    January 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A darkly playful deconstruction of the indie filmmaking process that digs into the artist-muse dynamic and the power structures in relationships, constantly teasing the viewer as to what's real and what's part of the writer character's imagination.

    January 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's often scathingly funny-a dark comic millennial spin on the Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? template, buoyed by three expertly modulated performances and acidic bon mots.

  • "Black Bear" is clever, yet ends without providing any certainty that its cleverness has a point. Its critique of self-indulgence is hard to separate from its actual self-indulgence.

  • You can't take your eyes off it.

    January 25, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • The film grows both somehow more feverish and believable with each twist and turn, a roaring good time that can't even be overshadowed by the actual beast creeping around outside.
