March 4, 2021
Director Ben Hozie's graphic dive into the world of the online sex industry showcases our human need to connect with others-fetishes and all

This is a film which begins in frenetic disarray and concludes with the same degree of uncertainty. Meet cutes have rarely been this visceral or financially dependent, yet somehow PVT Chat not only makes it work, but builds into a film of substance.

What the film does successfully is explore the facets and types of relationships that can blossom with internet culture.
February 22, 2021
Happily, this as much a source of humour for them as it is for the viewer.
February 20, 2021
The film's rough energy is a virtue, and there's plenty of it in Julia Fox's performance as an online dominatrix who captivates Jack. But Hozie's efforts to say something about modern romance could have used more discipline.

It's kind of gross, but you won't be able to take your eyes off of it.
February 18, 2021
Further proof that Julia Fox is an absolute star, even if writer/director Ben Hozie's genuinely fascinating exploration of the transactional nature of modern interpersonal relationships winds up undone by a messy third act.
February 13, 2021
With a little more nuance and less style, PVT Chat could have been an excellent examination on social relationships within the digital age of the internet, but it suffers from an undercooked story.
February 12, 2021
Its independent spirit shines through gloriously, reminding the viewer that, really, a decent story and some talented actors is all that's required to make a movie.
February 11, 2021
It's a film with a slackerish mumblecore vibe, and Hozie is refreshingly grown up about sex. But it's hard to see how his film adds much to the conversation about intimacy in the internet age.
February 11, 2021
"PVT Chat" is at its best when it delves into the intensity of digital relationships and the ways our minds can trick us into believing the deepness of a connection formed over a computer screen.
February 11, 2021
While PVT Chat has all the ingredients necessary to entertain any man's sleaziest desires, the film shows a vested interest in transposing sexual gender roles and forgoing vapid misconceptions about sex work and agency.
February 10, 2021
The movie ends up feeling like an older vintage of New York story, the kind of pre-gentrification indie you expect a youthful Jim Jarmusch to wander through.
February 10, 2021
Visceral and uncompromising in its vision, PVT Chat etches a gritty portrait of eroticism in the digital age with great nuance and authenticity.
February 10, 2021
Far from being a sexually liberating film, it's actually very unimaginative and narrow-minded that writer/director [Ben] Hozie chose to not put any women in this movie in any context except to be sexually in service to a thoughtless lowlife.
February 10, 2021
PVT Chat is a wild experience and a fantastic independent film.
February 8, 2021
The film fizzles out when it flips perspectives, falling into a caper that feels like Safdie Brothers-lite.
February 8, 2021
Hozie creates an old-school Scorsese and Ferrara-like portrait of a grubby New York, where everyone seems to be bartering for something, and he gets fearless, naked (figuratively and literally) performances out of both Fox and Vack.
February 7, 2021
This is a sexy, provocative, and timely statement - it plays like a 21st century Last Tango In Paris
February 6, 2021
With Julia Fox in the driver seat, there's plenty worth talking about.
