It is a film that is as profoundly uncomfortable as it is bitingly funny, because its humor is so grounded in truth.

A great story about friendship, about authenticity, about the value of humanity in the social media age.

Instagram influencers provide the #laughs in this sly comedy, but the ending is seriously ill-judged.

A brilliant movie about our social media addictions but it is more than that.

[T]he film loses the plot on being the witty commentary about pretending and public image in the social media age, but it's still an entertaining romp from start to finish.

It's a film that exhibits both how we want to be seen and how we actually are. We're all humans, with needs and wants and flaws...
December 20, 2018
A thoughtful and savage take on cyber bullying and the emptiness of social media that consumes most of our everyday lives.
December 7, 2018
Fittingly dark and humorously depraved, Ingrid Goes West is a biting, off-the-cuff commentary on neediness and the omnipresent social media culture.
December 7, 2018
Ingrid Goes West is a comedy masquerading as a psychological thriller, an allegory for our increasing dependence on empty social media interactions cleverly disguised as a chick flick.

Ingrid Thorburn is a Rupert Pupkin for the modern era.

A run-of-the-mill stalker narrative too timid to say anything at all.

I think Spicer does a very good job of folding in the satirical aspects of social media stardom alongside Ingrid's constant struggle with her inner demons.
August 27, 2018
Among a good overall cast, Aubrey Plaza does well as the exasperating, painfully misguided Ingrid, bringing out both the humour and the pathos in her futile efforts at connection.
August 27, 2018
Ingrid Goes West is a wickedly hilarious satire about a vacuous stratum of society.
August 27, 2018
The people examined by the film are as paper thin as the pixels that make the images on their phones, and have as much depth as an evaporated gully.
August 24, 2018
It'll make you squirm in your seat and abandon Instagram for a while after.
August 24, 2018
Aubrey Plaza carries this story through amusing, biting satire that is outrageous enough for wry chuckles, but recognizable and dangerous enough that it's a memorable little film.
