Critic Reviews for Very Semi-Serious

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (2)

  • Some of the best material in the film takes us out of the New Yorker offices and into the lives of the old-timers and the newcomers.

  • Bouncing briskly between an intimate look at the magazine's cartoon editor, Bob Mankoff, and profiles of prominent cartoonists (Roz Chast is the first woman to show up, 20 minutes in), the movie covers a lot.

    November 19, 2015 | Full Review…
  • It's a minor work that knows its place in the margins, but is thought-provoking and surreptitiously insightful - and very funny.

    November 19, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • With more than a hint of the magazine's trademark insouciance, the film gives us a close look at how the selection process works and introduces us a to a handful of younger artists, as well as such stalwarts as George Booth and Roz Chast.

    November 19, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Warm and frequently hilarious.

    November 16, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Buzzing attentively but not exclusively around cartoon editor Bob Mankoff, director Leah Wolchok strikes a pleasing balance between office minutiae and comic greatest hits.
