Welcome to Me, which she [Alice] designs and crafts every aspect of the production, provides her exactly what she needs, a medium where she is allowed to indulge in every aspect of herself...

The supporting cast are excellent...but this remains the Kristen Wiig show. Welcome to Me deserves to be seen for her raw performance alone.
November 15, 2018
"Welcome to Me" largely refrains from going in the obvious direction and hits its marks more often than not, hitting them hard either with stinging humor or shrewd observation or both simultaneously.

Wiig's deranged but sympathetic performance carries a lot of the film's weight effortlessly ...
August 31, 2018
If only Alice Krieg had directed it herself.
August 22, 2018
Kristen Wiig continues to grow as a performer in "Welcome to Me," which makes use of her singular comedic gifts, tempered in this film with a truly weird streak of drama and pathos.
August 22, 2018
It takes a soaring talent to pull off the part of Alice, and Wiig is the perfect fit.
August 13, 2018
Funny, frank and a little bit heartbreaking
October 24, 2017
This is one of those discomfiting films where you don't know whether to laugh or cry - Alice is self-obsessed and a bit unlikable too - and just end up feeling uncomfortable instead.
September 1, 2017
While she doesn't really humanize Alice, Wiig delivers an impressive blend of awkwardness, humor and pathos that elevates the story, even though it isn't enough to mask its flaws.
August 2, 2017
I'm not sure if Welcome to Me is one of the best films of the year so far-it genuinely might be-but it's definitely the weirdest.
December 28, 2016
Veering suddenly and wildly between sharp comedy and sharper tragedy, Shira Piven's bold indie rests almost entirely on Wiig, who offers up a fearless performance.
June 9, 2016
Wiig delivers a standout performance that manages to make Alice at once interesting, humorous, irritating and infuriating, but always successfully stops just short of making her an object of ridicule.
May 15, 2016
A funny and touching Kristen Wiig walks an acting tightrope in this dark comedy.
April 28, 2016
Wiig's depiction of a woman whose stories are apt to end with the declaration "then I went off my meds" is as disquieting as it is scarily accurate.
April 3, 2016
Ultimately, you are tempted to conclude that the film is a bit like Alice's chat show: a vanity project.

Whatever the state of your mental health, you'll want to follow Alice down the rabbit hole.
March 27, 2016
Feeling embarrassed for Alice is natural - everything you don't want her to do, she does. It's like watching your favourite sport team losing a game over and over and over.
March 27, 2016
To her great credit, Wiig manages to make Alice both engaging and annoying without ever rendering her ridiculous, lending heft to the film's portrait of her mental illness and televisual malaise.
March 25, 2016
Welcome to Me pulls it off, skittering nimbly along a tightrope between offensiveness, surreal humour and mawkishness.
