Critic Reviews for Clapboard Jungle

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (38) | Rotten (5)

  • As educational videos go, this may not be a replacement for film school, and it's definitely no substitute for doing the work. At least McConnell makes it clear what any wannabe Spielberg or Peele should know - it's all grind.

    April 16, 2021 | Full Review…
  • An unblinking autobiographical documentary in which tirelessly aspiring Canadian film-maker Justin McConnell takes us through the toils of a stalling career in the indie horror movie biz.

    April 14, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Clapboard Jungle suffers from a weird mix of information overload and a lack of actual, usable information that might be of assistance to film-makers or of interest to film audiences.

    April 14, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Clapboard Jungle is essential viewing to any aspiring filmmaker.

    August 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • This account of one man's search for success in the moviemaking world is less revelatory than mildly interesting.

    May 10, 2021 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Clapboard Jungle is saddled by the sheer, narrow tedium of McConnell's projects' constant fits and starts, amid a repetitive if enlightening deluge of filmmakers testifying to industry pitfalls.
