      Audience Member I don’t understand the negative reviews…I laughed and chuckled through the whole movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/05/22 Full Review Audience Member Does taiki ever really miss in anything he’s in or directs or even looks at ? 3.9 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/03/21 Full Review bryan b There is a fine line between funny and bizzaro. If you think funny is ppl breaking into an apartment to commit suicide then this is the comedy for you. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This is grade A garbage 🗑 😒 Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member This Indie film glorifies suicide despite its play on crime and cults. To story-tell about death in an ambiguous, post modern style while simultaneously including hints of comedy is certainly an interesting angle. However the writers did not consider the potential risks in releasing this unpoetic tale of existential phenomenon for certain audience members to view. This apathetic narrative can induce psychosis for some, mostly because the comedy was surface level and not deep/outrageous enough. The whole film was mediocre and did not leave viewers with cheers, hope, glory, or glee. It was not over the top ridiculous like the Scary Movie film series, and not insightful like Fight Club. The film itself was meaningless but I don't find that amusing. The detective was the only good character as he was actually funny and harmless. His animation was exuberant. There was some decent performance done by whoever played the main character Claire. Overall, to dramatically illuminate a bunch of sets while nihilistically talking about our meaninglessness with little to no symbolism, context or hope is not actually funny. Existentialism is quite real and to write about it with little tact and little humor is embarrassing and hazardous. I detest this poor attempt at creating a satire in regards to suicide in our post modern world. This should not have been released for young people to see (let alone anyone with depression); especially not with this level of depleted consciousness. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member I liked it. Some fantastic comedians and brilliant creative minds.

      Jamie Righetti indieWire The key to happiness might not be found in a dirty old bathtub in Los Angeles, but 7 Stages is still guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Rated: B+ May 29, 2018 Full Review Jason Bailey Flavorwire But more often than not, Seven Stages simply fails to navigate the turn from freaky to funny. May 2, 2018 Full Review Nick Schager Variety The outlandishness proffered by this comedy is of such a strident sort that any possible laughs quickly turn to eye-rolling groans. May 1, 2018 Full Review Laura Griffiths Starburst It's a morbid concept but so ridiculous, particularly in the film's final act, it works Rated: 4/5 Aug 27, 2020 Full Review Kat Hughes THN A fresh breath of comedy air. It's kooky, zany, wears its heart on its sleeve, and has Taika Waititi as a cult leader - what more do you need to know? Rated: 4/5 Jun 16, 2020 Full Review Tom Beasley Flickering Myth This is an example of squandered potential disappearing in a haze of indulgent nonsense. Taika Waititi with a guitar and a beard can save a lot of things, but it couldn't save this one. Rated: 2/5 Jun 12, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
