All Critics (46) | Top Critics (21) | Fresh (25) | Rotten (21)

  • [Janicza] Bravo and co-writer/spouse [Brett] Gelman have crafted something so intentionally and self-reflexively off-putting that I'm still banging my head against the wall trying to figure out if it's comic gold or just lives up to its title.

    September 14, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Be prepared for what will prove to be far and away the longest 83 minutes you'll spend watching a movie this year.

    August 25, 2017 | Rating: 0/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a case of truth in advertising.

    August 23, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A grating protagonist alone does not a bad film make, but the episodic, unsatisfying Lemon revels in purposeful nails-on-a-chalkboard unlikability.

    August 23, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Where black stories told by white filmmakers are often handled as procedures, their subjects stiff and unconscious, films like Lemon, directed by women like Bravo are remarkable exercises in humanity.

    August 19, 2017 | Full Review…
  • [Lemon] has some legitimately peculiar traits, and moments that flash with true absurdity. But there's a flatness in the end-result. The quirky is utterly predictable.
