Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town Reviews

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.
September 6, 2018
Unfortunately, Izzy fritters away much of its early promise and energy on a will-they-or-won't-they romantic plot that the film simultaneously indulges in and treats with contempt.

A pretty, slightly precious punk trifle with blood on its white tux jacket.

It should come as no surprise Mackenzie Davis is the best thing aboutIzzy Gets the F*ck Across Town, a lopsided, punk rock road trip movie without much road.

June 18, 2018
As far as the direction goes, Papierniak clearly wants the film to resemble a punk rock album. Still, it is impossible to shake the feeling that for an 86 minute film, Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town has more dead air than jolts of electricity

There's a very good probability that the story of how first-time writer-director Christian Papierniak finagled the (rather impressive) cast for his feature debut is vastly more interesting than the (rather unimpressive) film itself.
June 22, 2018
All the punk energy in the world can't distract from the second-rate Sundance-ness.

June 22, 2018
Despite a committed performance from lead actress Mackenzie Davis and a promising opening, the film quickly corkscrews into a death spiral of trite dialogue meant to obfuscate the lack of a coherent or meaningful narrative.

June 21, 2018
It is a movie that almost dares you to walk out (or click away, if you're watching at home).

...works hard to bring an edge to its shallow story.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
June 21, 2018
Watching Izzy's frenzied pratfalls often feels like watching a documentary of Ms. Davis - always great - running a hamster wheel that powers uninspired comic material.
June 21, 2018
Izzy does come across as a one-note character until the movie's climactic confrontation...

"Given the vintage alt-culture vibe, you'd swear this blast of Hot Topic Cinema had been spat out of a time machine."

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.
October 11, 2018
A film full of piss and vinegar, but also a fair amount of charm, it's the sort of energetic calling card that should get all involved more work.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Mackenzie Davis energizes the indie-punk comedy.

May 1, 2018
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 19, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
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.
