Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter Despite its claustrophobic setting and small-scale concerns, this low-key drama proves unexpectedly diverting. Jun 4, 2013 Full Review Amy Nicholson Los Angeles Times Griffith's wry dramedy is both a character study and a personal showcase, but his fatal flaw is that Shoes just isn't as interesting as the drunks, jerks, goons and dreamers who stumble into his lair to relieve themselves. Rated: 2.5/5 May 31, 2013 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com It's a film that examines the various types of people who frequent strip clubs but rather than judging them it just sort of represents their truths. Rated: 3.0/4.0 Sep 8, 2020 Full Review Brent Simon Shockya.com An intriguing pop-psychology character study -- a movie of minor revelations but shrewd behavioral observations. Rated: B- Jun 22, 2013 Full Review Chuck Wilson L.A. Weekly A remarkably assured debut. May 31, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member The world of "Shoes" is unforgettable, filled with deeply flawed relatable characters, and examines the deep moral struggles of the modern age - all from within the men's bathroom of a strip club. George Griffith shines as writer / director / star in this unapologetically cool single location film. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
