  • It's a fascinating depiction of the way men do -- or don't -- confront life's tragedies and traumas.

  • You probably wouldn't want to spend that much time with these people yourself, but at least they're never boring.

    August 12, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Joshy" is like a weekend with random friends: fun and familiar, but rarely any deeper than the personalities involved. Don't look for more and you'll be fine.

    August 12, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Alcohol-induced shambling, cocaine-induced motor-mouthing and mushroom-induced melancholia are depicted with sobering accuracy.

    August 11, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Baena delivers a quiet and largely plotless dramedy that walks the line between goofy bro comedy and mumblecore drama.

    August 11, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • An engagingly perceptive and often darkly funny glimpse at wrestling with issues of adulthood after a life of seemingly endless adolescence.

Audience Reviews for Joshy

  • Aug 14, 2016
    White people problems seem to be tantamount in this indie/black comedy. Fortunately, Joshy's struggle is more universally resonant and to the film's comedic elements' benefit, peripheral. The film revolves around a talented comedy cast dealing with their own relationship issues and existential ennui, all the while delivering some very effective (mostly improvised) laughs. There is typical indie cringe comedy dotting the transitions: at it's best it is better than anything in "The Hangover", at it's worst it is no better than any dull episode of "The Office". The structure and thematic elements seem to be a much less heavy-handed version of Guillaume Canet's "Little White Lies", but unlike that film it always stays funny, even amidst the more somber moments. Particularly impressive is the underlying paranoia of a who-done-it murder mystery that permeates the comedy. It is an interesting tone, and makes "Joshy" stand out from the standard indie-comedy genre.
