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) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (12)

  • 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.

    July 14, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • 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).

    June 12, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A Mbius strip, a seductive surface where reality and cinema twist into one.

    June 11, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Lacking more defined instincts for either comedy or drama, The Film Critic exists in a muddled, mushy middle ground.

    June 4, 2015 | Rating: 5.5/10 | 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.
