Critic Consensus: Well-acted and sharply written, Non-Fiction finds writer-director Olivier Assayas working in a comedic vein that channels classic forebears while remaining utterly fresh.
Critic Reviews for Non-Fiction
In terms of surface tone, this is one of the airiest things the director has made, though what it has to say about the Internet is as unsettling as Demonlover...
[Assayas] is genuinely interested in all sides of the debate and isn't looking for answers so much as constantly asking questions. At the same time, Non-Fiction still feels dry and didactic even if it resists a thesis.
The frame holds steadier here; it's the churning dialogue - funny, seductive, always carving out fresh tributaries - that propels you forward.
Olivier Assayas' sly and delightful Non-Fiction... feels like such a lark at first - like a master filmmaker clearing his throat between more significant projects. That's exactly what Assayas wants you to think.
