  • The sex was good but the delirious lesbian mumblecore didn't leave a lasting impression.

    August 2, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The director, Miguel Arteta (who co-wrote the script with Shawkat), finds no symbolic dimension or wider resonance in the schematic proceedings.

    May 7, 2018 | Full Review…
  • What a feat for Shawkat in particular -- her myriad creative strengths are exemplified here, and I'm so excited for whatever she does next.

    May 4, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Like its characters, Duck Butter is imperfect, but unlike human objects of our affection, it's attractive despite its flaws rather than because of them.

    May 4, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • It feels like we're seeing the director's cut of an IKEA commercial.

    April 28, 2018 | Full Review…
  • An instant classic... a truly fresh and modern relationship movie, a portrait of two women who collide, spectacularly, for a moment in time.
