Duck Butter has a pair of compelling leads and a refreshing female-driven perspective, but its story is ultimately too thin to support a feature-length production.

The director, Miguel Arteta (who co-wrote the script with Shawkat), finds no symbolic dimension or wider resonance in the schematic proceedings.
It feels like we're seeing the director's cut of an IKEA commercial.
An instant classic... a truly fresh and modern relationship movie, a portrait of two women who collide, spectacularly, for a moment in time.
Just like what Naima and Sergio are doing, the movie is itself an impulsive, fleeting relationship experiment with mixed results.
As appealing as Shawkat and Laia Costa are, the material isn't strong enough to captivate for the full 90 minutes the way it does during the first 30.
If you can step outside of your comfort zone, like Shawkat and Costa demonstrate with their brazen performances, this is worth a watch.
Shawkat, who co-wrote the screenplay with Arteta, is winsome and appealing. Costa's Sergio sometimes plays the cliche of the exotic foreigner with expansive dramatic feeling, but the chemistry between the actresses carries the film through.
Cleverly weaves in a thought-provoking statement on connection and relationships while providing charismatic performances by writer/actress Alia Shawkat and Laia Costa.
The sex was good but the delirious lesbian mumblecore didn't leave a lasting impression.
There's a heartfelt authenticity that overcomes structural familiarity in this tender lesbian romance.
It is not a light movie (as the trailers might suggest), but it's a unique, refreshing one, driven by remarkable performances from Shawkat and Costa.
This movie boldly sticks its nose where others don't.
