Crystal Fairy is all about that uneasy destination: never in sight but always on the edge of perception.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
June 8, 2016
Low-key, naturalistic and original, Sebastian Silva's study of two Americans finding their way in Chile is an often funny, always compelling journey that rings true.

The summer of cokehead Michael Cera continues.
April 8, 2014
It's a messy film, but it hits more than it misses, sometimes landing on something emotionally resonant.
Full Review | Original Score: B
February 1, 2014
Deadpan funny as a comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
January 19, 2014
An engaging, rambling affair that is pleasant to watch and easy to forget. But it does the job of proving that there's a lot more to Michael Cera than previously met the eye.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 17, 2014
Films don't get much more offbeat than this trippy comedy-drama about Americans in Chile.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

A trip worth taking.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 17, 2014
Cera's chin may be weak, but his strength as an actor cannot be denied.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
January 17, 2014
Not much happens, and its roots as an improvised project do show through, but the film does have the authentic ring of carefree wanderlust about it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 16, 2014
It is an odd film in many ways, but immensely likeable, and expertly improvised by a talented cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 16, 2014
Stretches of improv with passers-by means the film can resemble one of those What the Director Did on His Holidays doodles, yet its breeziness is oddly warming: Silva's open to the elements in ways his blinkered protagonist only claims to be.

January 16, 2014
Silva's freewheeling direction is pleasantly at odds with the angst on screen.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
January 16, 2014
Engaging, painfully awkward road trip drama enlivened by a pair of strong performances from Michael Cera and Gaby Hoffmann, which it's slightly weakened by an underwhelming finale.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
January 16, 2014
While never hugely memorable, it's funny and engaging in the moment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 16, 2014
The film's effect, probably like that of the San Pedro cactus, is pleasant, dreamy, hippy-evanescent and very años sesenta.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 16, 2014
Crystal and Jamie... inscribe a part of their small lives in this eternal landscape, with [writer director Sebastián] Silva trusting his viewers to perform the excavation for themselves.
January 13, 2014
The semi-improvised plot is thinner than Cera's man-boy face-fluff, but Silva's curio works best as a free-wheeling character piece, splicing oddball comedy with discreet depths.

January 10, 2014
A reminder of formative times in our young lives. You want to remain forever with these characters in this wonderful moment. But you know that the moment has passed.
November 4, 2013
The first act seems to promise 70 more minutes of rambling episodes, at the overbearing whim of a director toying with an insufferable protagonist. It's a bit of a shock, then, when Crystal Fairy turns out to be really good.
