Critic Reviews for Project Greenlight Season 4

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (11)

It's as fascinating -- and infuriating -- as ever, inadvertently illustrating the obstacles facing women and minorities in Hollywood.

A primer on reality TV's best quality: the way that it can capture unspeakably complex human relationships in all their unspeakable complexity.

In 2015, it turns out, the charms of Greenlight are just what they were in 2005. Lots of stressed-out people... starring, through bleary and caffeine-blasted eyes, at phones for news that in an instant could change their lives.

From the start, this 2015 Project Greenlight is both educational and completely entertaining. This is a show that was more than worth reviving.

It was addictive then, and it's addictive now, as the series returns after a decade-long hiatus.

[It] lacks the visual flair and polish of The Chair but it's people-talking-about-making-a-movie-in-drab-offices vibe is similar. Project Greenlight is more focused and that streamlined approach continues to make it the superior movie-making docuseries.

After a decade-long break, Project Greenlight has made a triumphant return to HBO, where it's now three episodes into its fourth and (so far) best season.

Oct 7, 2015 | Full Review…

The interaction between Damon, Affleck, and other mentors on their team are quite interesting, especially when they are discussing the specific aspects of the filmmaking process.

Sep 16, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Project Greenlight is a worthwhile television show. Like any compelling narrative, it has clear characters with strong wants and a comprehensible environment with appropriate obstacles.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

The season ends, and considering how badly it has navigated tricky racial issues, probably none too soon.

    I love reality shows like this.
  • Aug 05, 2016
    great way of pulling back the curtain on hollywood and exposing the real life struggles/victories that take place

    That Effie woman is so annoying, I couldn't watch the series anymore! She was likely added just to create drama, but she's a bully, and annoying like hell.

    It was an interesting process to see. I had never seen the show before and had always intended to do so. I'm still not sure we saw everything, just the budget vs art story.

    Effie Brown is a joke. She's an embarrassment to the fight for equality, making everything personal, petty, and unnecessarily dramatic. She creates half the work she does, and she is the only one who doesn't realize that she's on the show not because of her incredible skill and talent, but her combative and petty personality and how she can't appreciate a solution without a considerable amount of conflict first. Terrible for business or productivity, but great for a reality TV show. Overall the season is as interesting as the others, I liked it.

    I don't know how realistic it is but I'm enjoying the show.

    interesting .. but, editing is slanted towards sensationalism ... need to remain a how to insight thing ...

    As someone who loves cinema and the process of filmmaking, it is quite the honest opinion that Project Greenlight is a very interesting and very entertaining look into the life of the first-time filmmaker as he or she goes out to make their debut motion picture. And with every new episode, you're always wondering how the fate of the movie is gonna turn out, and I am always interested in knowing the behind-the-scenes stories and interesting facts, so this kind of show is perfect for someone like me. Even when you look at the bonus footage and deleted scenes, you always get a new treat of information as you follow the filmmaking process, and had I heard of this when it was first on, I probably would've been a fan of it from the get go. Now that it's back on the air, and on the channel it deserves to be, Project Greenlight is the kind of show I'm always looking forward to whenever a new episode is on the horizon, and I anticipate the day to arrive when we watch the final product.

    The premise of this series is great but the execution is in grave peril of becoming a catty reality show. Stick to the movie making and a bit less on the Effie Show!
