A Möbius strip, a seductive surface where reality and cinema twist into one.
Like so many of the flicks that the film's gloomy title character seems to review, this kind of anti-romantic comedy proves a mediocre brew.
A gentle wake-up call for reviewers who see themselves as movie gatekeepers rather than movie analysts.
"The Film Critic" is an extended spoof more than anything else (it may have worked better as a short film), and its targets are pretty shallow, but it still includes many entertaining and insightful elements.
As in much recent South American art cinema, the depictions of working life are vivid and relatable, throwing the more fantastic ideas into sharp relief.
"The Film Critic" is at once too clever by half and not as smart as it pretends to be.
The disgruntled filmmaker subplot is clunky, but critiquing genre through genre is a clever conceit.
The only thing more boring than a movie about movies is a movie about a movie critic.
The movie's best at wry humor, especially in the way Victor wrests control of the picture back to his own taste (the ending of The Film Critic is the sort he prefers).
Lacking more defined instincts for either comedy or drama, The Film Critic exists in a muddled, mushy middle ground.
A film critic turned filmmaker seems intent on confirming negative stereotypes about critics... and that's before his movie gets truly unpleasantly smug.
A former critic himself, Hernan Guerschuny couldn't have conveyed any more contempt for his past profession if he had spliced scenes from Birdman into his film.
