Movie Info

A playful yet heartfelt take on the rom-com genre, THE FILM CRITIC follows Victor Tellez, a world-weary Buenos Aires film critic who prefers to think in French and eschews romantic clichés...until he finds himself living one. Riddled with ennui and the maladie du cinema, Tellez drifts from screening to screening in search of cinematic perfection, casting judgment on filmmakers and their films with scathing incisiveness. But when a chance meeting throws him into the jarring world of gorgeous thrill-seeker Sofia (Dolores Fonzi), he starts to question his meticulous, intellectual routine and realizes there's more to his story than he ever dreamed.

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (8)

A Möbius strip, a seductive surface where reality and cinema twist into one.

June 11, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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.

Top Critic

"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.

May 15, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

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.
