August 25, 2017
Be prepared for what will prove to be far and away the longest 83 minutes you'll spend watching a movie this year.

It's a case of truth in advertising.

A grating protagonist alone does not a bad film make, but the episodic, unsatisfying Lemon revels in purposeful nails-on-a-chalkboard unlikability.

Bravo and Gelman find a transcendent absurdity in the mundane that's awkwardly enchanting. It's more tart than sweet, but deliciously weird nonetheless.

One of the more original films in recent memory.
