J. R. Jones Chicago Reader As in Wes Anderson's Rushmore, there's something funny and charming about amateur artists investing a modest theatrical exercise with immodest creative ambitions. Apr 17, 2020 Full Review Tatiana Craine Village Voice Skwarna and Armstrong's quirky chemistry keeps the lights on in this overlong debut. Jan 16, 2018 Full Review Ignatiy Vishnevetsky AV Club Fluorescents' showy camera moves and full-jazz-hands theater-kid dorkiness are a tonic against the excessively muted naturalism that has come to define indie style. Rated: B Jan 13, 2018 Full Review Pat Padua Spectrum Culture When the final set piece kicks in, everything that preceded it locks into place for a scene that’s everything you want from drama. And it has fewer than 250 views on Letterboxd. Don’t let its light go out. Sep 20, 2022 Full Review Phil Guie Film-Forward.com Overall, Dim the Fluorescents is a thoughtful film with relatable characters. Rated: 5/5 Mar 21, 2019 Full Review Harvey S. Karten Big Apple Reviews A playwright and an actress living together should complement each other, and these two women have remarkable chemistry throughout; in a movie with empathy for individuals who choose theater as a profession regardless of limited job openings. Rated: B- Jan 13, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member brilliant last scene. Loved it !!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/11/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a terrific film. Really. Happy to watch on boxxy software Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This move had no point and was terrible, the critics who rated this movie so high must be high themselves. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/10/18 Full Review Audience Member So glad I could stream this after reading reviews over the winter. Loved seeing Toronto on the big screen and the acting was terrific. Great work. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Horrible!! Nothing interesting gong on here!! Those critics must have been drunk! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Saw it yesterday. Fantastic film! Can't believe it's a debut. It hardly discussed in any of the reviews I've been seeing here, but the music/soundtrack of this film is perfect. Disappointed to not find more music from the composer (Miles Barstead) online. I want it on CD! Bravo! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
