All Critics (20) | Top Critics (5)

"Life Itself" is one of the worst kind of bad movies, because it achieves nothing that it sets out to do.

September 17, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

To describe its plot in detail is to betray the game of the film, but suffice it to say that the sum of its parts are exhilarating.

It's both schematic and self-important.
