  • the comedy's three main players (Aubrey Plaza, Sarah Gadon, Christopher Abbott) each provide incredible showcases; Unique and unfazed, hilarious yet philosophical, "Black Bear" is the comedic form reinvented and re-conformed to mad and intoxicating ends
    Review rate : A- by Robert Daniels [The Playlist ]
  • fueled by surprise and layered with an intoxicating dream logic, "Black Bear" is the kind of discovery you hope for: wholly unexpected, compellingly demanding, and utterly unique; You can't take your eyes off it
    Review rate : A- by David Canfield [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • from the start, the trio makes for an engaging set-up; The film grows both somehow more feverish and believable with each twist and turn, a roaring good time that can't even be overshadowed by the actual beast creeping around outside
    Review rate : A- by Kate Erbland [IndieWire ]
  • all-in-all, "Black Bear" is an impressive, indelible look at the creative process and the cost of indulgence. It's a striking little movie, bolstered by excellent performances
    4 of 5 by Lindsey Romain [Nerdist ]
  • a quirky, darkly funny, heartbreakingly incisive drama; More than a metatextual look at the struggles of indie filmmakers to gnaw at their own emotional wounds, Black Bear is an astounding showcase for its leads, and way more than it says on the wrapper
    Review rate : A- by Clint Worthington [Consequence of Sound ]
  • a darkly playful deconstruction of the indie filmmaking process that digs into the artist-muse dynamic and the power structures in relationships, constantly teasing the viewer as to what's real and what's part of the writer character's imagination
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • "Black Bear" is the most spell-binding movies I've seen this year, with such magnetic acting and a twisted story that makes you hang onto every word; this really is one of this generation's most unique films
    5 of 5 by EJ Moreno [Flickering Myth ]
  • "Black Bear" is clever, yet ends without providing any certainty that its cleverness has a point. Its critique of self-indulgence is hard to separate from its actual self-indulgence
    by Dennis Harvey [Variety ]
