Critic Reviews for Seduced And Abandoned

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (11)

Baldwin and Toback make a snappy comic duo, and half of their talks with a line-up of luminaries focus on the art of filmmaking rather than the business.

Time Out
Top Critic

A fun, larky travel essay and commentary on the film biz, an exquisite wallow in the most rarefied sort of first-world problems.

Ironically, the failure of the financing mission gives [it] a sharper edge. But in the end, that edge will probably be of more interest to Baldwin, Toback and the film biz than to a civilian, who mostly wants to know why she can't find a decent rom-com.

Toback's directorial intuition proves to be spot-on: their self-revealing brave face on humiliation and despair is deeply cinematic.

This one seems to effortlessly breathe on its own as a buddy/buddy "road picture" with scenic pathways, a few dead ends and refreshing breezes throughout.

The fact that it is so funny eventually becomes strangely sad, which makes the film thoroughly enjoyable but also irresistibly provocative.
