  • "Family Romance, LLC" has the bittersweet quality of a Disney story but the production qualities of a Lifetime movie, resulting in an experimental tone that never quite settles in one place.

  • Herzog takes an unconventional route, but in the end he manages to find emotional truth in this tender, funny and sweet story about modern relationships.

  • A strange, faintly frustrating but diverting film.

  • Homo sapiens are a strange species, and few capture that more satisfyingly than Herzog, even if this is clearly one of his minor works.

  • On a formal level, it's a fascinating study of the artifice of the genre, a deconstruction of the comforting contract between artist and viewer that guides us towards a particular kind of emotional or intellectual engagement.

    March 25, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • By leaning-in to digital artifice, Herzog searches constantly for the nuggets of truth nestled between constructed lies, ultimately finding the bitter loneliness between moments of performative façade.
