It's all mighty existential and interesting, yet the introduction of this heady topic acts as prelude to a rather bizarre, if dark, comedic situation. The timing, like everything in this movie, is a little off-kilter.

Izzy...is at its best when it reflects its star's manic energy.

Propulsive, kinetic, and unapologetically crass ... this is the sort of potential breakthrough role [Mackenzie] Davis has needed for years.

It's here that the price of admission pays off because the sisters manage to kill their impromptu performance whilst simultaneously engaging in conversation using only their faces and vocal intonations.
June 22, 2018
There's very little at stake in this spunky little indie comedy, and that's part of its charm; Davis is endearing, and the SoCal locations and characters are warmly, lazily quirky.

June 22, 2018
An effective little indie with fantastic performances and a mostly effective structure. And it definitely won't feel like sitting in languorous L.A. traffic.

Amid the Diablo Cody-style one-liners, a couple of things raise Izzy above the usual indie fare.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 21, 2018
energetic, jam-packed with talent and has a likable indie throwback feel with some memorable moments. But in an ultimately frustrating ending, we question if she even grew at all, and if not, why we spent the time with her at all.
June 21, 2018
Charmingly profane, with a buzzing riot-grrrl soundtrack, "Izzy" is a stylish twist on an '80s trope: Here it's the woman as pathetic supplicant, trying to win back someone who's moved on.

June 21, 2018
Sometimes cleverly funny, sometimes disappointingly clunky, Izzy winds up a winner, thanks to a strong ending and a righteous, go-for-broke Mackenzie Davis.
June 21, 2018
Davis ought to be a big goddamn star...She can turn from snarlingly abrasive to profoundly tender with one blink of her eye-liner smudged lids.

June 20, 2018
It's uneven practically by design, with a tone that slides all the way from kooky farce to anguished psychological study, just about held together by Mackenzie Davis's lively, spiky turn in the lead.
June 19, 2018
The film is about being overwhelmed by Los Angeles, its sprawling indifference, but also about finding your place in it - and even, at times, its welcoming warmth.
June 17, 2018
Christian Papierniak manages to get a tricky tonal balance more or less right, capturing the false sense of superiority that Izzy projects over her environment without allowing the film itself to revel in said superiority.

Smartly written with stellar acting and deft direction, this hilarious movie demands to be seen as soon as possible.
Full Review | Original Score: A
July 3, 2017
[A] dizzying mashup of frenetic visual styles and clashing narrative techniques.
June 25, 2018
...a scrappy, madcap indie that's clearly less interested in any semblance of stylistic or emotional consistency than it is in just keeping us dizzy. Its moments of charm are few and fleeting.
June 23, 2018
All one can do is watch Izzy get from point A to point B with as many obstacles being placed in the way as possible.
June 22, 2018
All the punk energy in the world can't distract from the second-rate Sundance-ness.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
June 22, 2018
The writer-director, Christian Papierniak, made his name with the video game NBA 2K18. He appears to be trying to split the difference between that arena and the world of "edgy" indie female-driven comedy.
