Critic Reviews for Ingrid Goes West
The experience is akin to being kneaded by a cat - now soft paws, now sharp claws, alternatingly sweet and deeply uncomfortable.
"Ingrid Goes West" is a sharp, insightful modern day stalker fantasy, "Single White Female" through a Valencia Instagram filter.
Plaza, of course, is marvelous in the title role, embracing Ingrid's unflattering neediness with a commitment that's scary.
Aubrey Plaza is brilliant in "Ingrid goes West," Matt Spicer's smart, satirical and sometimes scathing takedown of the vapidity social media sometimes injects into life.
Now 33, Plaza can still get away with playing an ingenue (that's what Ingrid is, a toxic ingenue). She can do comedy. She can do drama. She's best of all, as here, at combining both.
Audience Reviews for Ingrid Goes West
Of course Plaza is the perfect fit for an obsessive fan / stalker Ingrid. The beginning is particularly funny, mocking the instagram craze and its participants on both sides, but never entirely giving up on its deeply flawed characters. While things get a little more dramatic later on, the humor does turn darker but it's abandoned altogether. The solution works, too. LA, Venice and Joshua Tree look amazing and the actors all fill their roles with life. Well done.
Really enjoyed this one. Definitely be watching it again. So relevant to all the falseness online and I really enjoyed Ingrid’s stalker tendencies!
I'm super uncomfortable in a really good way.
