October 30, 2018
Krystal is a movie that is overflowing with bewildering decisions, from its bizarre tonal shifts to its complete disinterest in the moral implications of its characters' actions.

This sounds bad, right? But it's wonderful.
August 13, 2018
The plot of this movie is simple at its core, but it spirals out to become increasingly bizarre.
August 13, 2018
The subject matter is great and is showcased brilliantly in certain scenes. The drama is there. The comedy is there. [But] there are [also] a few things that didn't mesh well with the film.

Krystal is as much of a head-scratcher as described, and a complete hodgepodge of ideas, tones, and ponderous dialogue about life.
April 20, 2018
What starts out as a sincere portrait of addiction and recovery is undermined by aggressively broad comedy.
April 18, 2018
Beneath the hideously feigned southern charm of "Krystal" is a picture so averse to any sense of sincerity or meaningful character development that the end product is nothing more than a naval-gazing attempt at madcap humor and aw-shucks romance.
April 13, 2018
Krystal is unfortunately a half-assed attempt at a dramedy and lacks the self-awareness to acknowledge its own absurdity.
April 13, 2018
Krystal feels like the result of an elaborate blunder wherein three different scripts were accidentally shuffled together and then - presumably through a series of hijinks - the director accidentally shot it all straight through.
April 13, 2018
Where does one even begin with a movie like this?
April 13, 2018
So baffling that it must be appreciated at least for its ability to defy all logic.
April 12, 2018
Too forced, chaotic and randomly eccentric to make for a fully engaging and cohesive emotional experience.
April 12, 2018
A talented cast in top form can't salvage this Southern Gothic serio-comedy.
April 12, 2018
"Krystal" feels chaotic and thin, like a pilot that was also forced to be a series finale.
April 12, 2018
Krystal deserves more than a better man, she deserves to be in a stronger effort more willing to give her some characterization
April 11, 2018
Southern drawls and Southern stereotypes who occasionally achieve "middling" in their search for madcap.
April 11, 2018
This is the sort of determinedly quirky would-be comedy that induces far more cringes than laughs.
April 11, 2018
Nearly everything these characters do goes beyond the realm of common sense.
April 10, 2018
Secrets, lies and vast array of medical emergencies beset the game cast before the story goes fully off the rails.
April 10, 2018
These shenanigans might be amusing if they came with consequences, but big things happen, only to be forgiven or forgotten by the following scene.
