Critic Reviews for The Great Pretender

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (3)

  • Self-delusion is the principal subject of this short, acerbic comedy by Nathan Silver.

    December 21, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Flashbacks and fantasies, plus wry inserts of film clips and complex overlaps of art and life, adorn-for that matter, overwhelm-the story, which is built on flimsy psychological clichés amid the implacable imperatives of desire and disease.

    December 10, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The energetically crafted, well-acted movie about characters one would go to considerable extremes to avoid in real life is turning into a veritable indie micro-genre.

    December 6, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The punchlines are dark and the tone is caustic, but its central concern is a classic one: what we see in other people and how we would like to see ourselves.

  • This film is a beautiful and beguiling art object.

    May 1, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Unfortunately, as with so many of Silver's films, the endless self-absorption of the characters on display quickly wears thin.

  • Silver has done something really special with all of this, bringing the stories of these four people together in a sort of relationship mélange that speaks to the ways people can't help but miss the forest for the trees.

    April 3, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • The offhanded, piercing quality of the comedy within the viper's nest of romantic roundelays suggests a cruel Alan Rudolph, and that's more than enough for me.
