Movie Reviews

  • Radha Blank's voice feels distinct and vital; she's gone and given us one of the most exciting debuts of the year
    5 of 5 by Emma Simmonds [The List Film (UK) ]
  • Radha Blank's first feature is an earnest, honest, often hilarious testimonial from a gifted writer about what it means for someone in her position to reinvent; this film is Blank's shot, and by staying so true to her voice, her aim hits home
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • in the new film "The 40-Year-Old Version", writer-director Radha Blank has created a winning movie that follows a woman of color coming to terms with her art, her life, and her voice with honesty and wit
    4 of 5 by Norman Gidney [Film Threat ]
  • a story that will very truly nourish the soul; endearing, erudite and dripping with humour, Blank serves up an authentic commentary on the artist's struggle, from a perspective too often ignored, and delivers a lyrical love letter to New York
    4 of 5 by Hanna Flint [Empire Magazine ]
  • a personal, playful, and poignant examination of a mid-career artist; Playwright Radha Blank's spirited directorial debut "The 40-Year-Old Version" in an often hilarious and heartfelt autobiographical tale of reinvention
    Review rate : B+ by John Fink [The Film Stage ]
  • a debut that sings (and raps) with delight; It's a love letter to the people of pre-gentrified Harlem, to old-school hip-hop, to struggling artists, to young people with big dreams and to black women who dare to live life out of the box
    by Beandrea July [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • "The 40-Year-Old Version" has a fascinating meta quality lurking just beneath its playful surface, as it documents a creative crisis on the brink of a solution -- and, with this charming first feature, finds that solution with its very existence
    Review rate : B by Eric Kohn [IndieWire ]
