Critic Reviews for The Alchemist Cookbook

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (4)

  • The movie peaks at its midpoint with a chilling nocturnal encounter that blurs the line between hallucination and the genuinely supernatural; the rest of the movie pivots around it, but slowly.

    November 3, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A chapter-driven series of sketchy scenes powered by a striking, manic performance by lead actor Ty Hickson.

    November 1, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Whatever The Alchemist Cookbook has to express, it expresses through scenes that feel as though someone were dared to do something while a camera rolled, in the near-extinct tradition of the transgressive underground movie.

  • While "The Alchemist Cookbook" certainly won't be for everyone, it will surely delight and surprise those who can grok its idiosyncratic content.
