Justin Chang Los Angeles Times A movie that gazes deep into its characters' unhappiness and emerges with something searching, sad - and perilously close to likable. Feb 15, 2018 Full Review Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic Honestly, if it weren't for the performances this would probably be insufferable. But everyone in the film is good. Rated: 4/5 Feb 15, 2018 Full Review Joshua Rothkopf Time Out While you'll salute Golden Exits for never going full-on Fatal Attraction, it ends up feeling cagey, trapped in the realm of the theoretical and too hip to raise its tensions above a simmer. Rated: 3/5 Feb 15, 2018 Full Review Colin Stacy Vague Visages This film doesn’t have an answer, but it does compel one to actually care about the stuff of their life. Dec 6, 2023 Full Review Vadim Rizov Filmmaker Magazine As with Noah Baumbach’s films, on a certain level I wonder outside of a certain kind of tristate social nexus could possibly care about this — and, equally, I don’t really care. Jan 12, 2023 Full Review David Bax Battleship Pretension Perry's aesthetic choice are also designed to obscure clarity. The film is grainy-warmly and beautifully so-while the sound design is such that everything is more or less at the level of room tone. Dec 11, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

jacqui m Yuck! Horrible movie; charades as a vehicle of epiphany; just saps audience' time. 1 hour, 29 minutes I will never get back. To get things straight, children of the 80s and early 90s in Australia absolutely grew up with "who's the boss"! American movies love framing Australians as backward, hick or deprived in some way. 🤮 Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/14/23 Full Review Audience Member I've liked some of Alex Ross Perry's films in the past, but this isn't one of them. Just found it to be torturous to watch, with stiff and stilted dialogue plus quite unlikable characters. Seemed to all end up in pretentious babble, I'm sorry to say. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member The film was shot in 15 days. It felt like it took that long to watch it. The character development had potential, but it was a paradise lost. The New York setting could have been utilyzed to it's benefit, but it was nowhere to be found. I kept hanging on for some plot development. It went down like a leak in an ignored tire... very slowly. I've rated movies this poorly due to gratuitous sex. That would have improved this loser. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review farah r Boring and too artsy for its own good. Golden Exists has a terrible plot and a worse script. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review toby h Not a bad watch, despite nothing much happening. Classic indie filmmaking. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member There are some movies that are so bad that they become fascinating to watch just to see how bad they can be. This movie isn't bad. It isn't much of anything. However, it does take the feeling of boredom to levels at which it becomes inverted. The boredom that this movie generates becomes an end in itself. Don't expect to learn anything or feel anything with this movie. it just exists and that is about all I can say about it. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
