... after an opening montage that ridicules the worst excesses of social-media myth-making ("This is me and my wonderful life!"), the movie has little left to say.

An appealing cast gives its all to a highly-charged satire that stays as skin-deep as a selfie.

Writer-director Matt Spicer makes his feature debut with a horribly enjoyable satire, painted in hard-edged, acrid colours: the colours of an Instragram post, in fact.

[Matt] Spicer has certainly hit his target. But 97 minutes spent in this company is just too hard to bear.
August 25, 2017
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.
August 24, 2017
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.

You won't remember "Ingrid Goes West" for long after it's over, but as summer diversions go, you could do much worse.
August 22, 2017
Ingrid Goes West is part comedy, part tragedy, part horror/thriller, and part social commentary. Although it is primarily satirical, director/co-writer Matt Spicer never loses sight of the characters.
August 18, 2017
Director and co-writer Matt Spicer displays just the right touch as the story gets crazier.
August 18, 2017
The critique is clever but the limit is the one so common in satire: it's hard to care about the fate of a character this exaggerated.
August 17, 2017
It comes on like a Sundance comedy ... but it unfolds like a Hitchcock suspenser.
August 17, 2017
Few movies have captured as vividly the humbling sense of social media as a gigantic party welcoming everyone but us.
August 16, 2017
Like all great movie comedies, it hurts, but it's true.
August 15, 2017
Though I can't and shouldn't make the case that Ingrid Goes West is a great movie, it's a film that I loved, a highlight of my movie year.
Top Critic
August 14, 2017
Ingrid Goes West makes a few valid points. Too bad the whole thing looks more like a tweet than a movie.
August 11, 2017
Instagram stalking deserves a meaner satire than this well-acted but ultimately harmless pretender.
August 11, 2017
A daring comedy with a very sharp bite.
