All Critics (14) | Top Critics (11)

When The Chair highlights the differences between its two stars, it is engaging and enlightening.

The Chair is more than a competition, it's an invaluable tool for critics and viewers looking for a deeper understanding of the state of the director's position in 2014.

The filmmaker's journey in The Chair -- that's a reality TV show I can actually, and heartily, endorse.

Chris Moore has created an intriguing and seriously educational series that may teach viewers a great deal about the difficulty of the (filmmaking) process.

The Chair is strangely addictive television - even though, by reality show standards, the premise sounds rather sedate.

New reality show The Chair has an interesting premise that may pay off richly.

The Chair doesn't make filmmaking look fun to actually do (aspiring movie moguls may disagree), but it's a lot of fun to watch.

Sep 8, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The unscripted series is surprisingly engrossing and probably more valuable than two years of film school for would-be auteurs.

Sep 8, 2014 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The competition element is an intriguing twist, but what makes The Chair so compelling, is watching two distinct personalities shape the material in such thoroughly different ways.

Sep 5, 2014 | Full Review…

Despite its overly talky nature, those interested in how productions get off of the ground will be fascinated by the details, which The Chair doesn't miss one moment of.
