Ben Sachs Chicago Reader Self-delusion is the principal subject of this short, acerbic comedy by Nathan Silver. Dec 21, 2018 Full Review Richard Brody New Yorker Flashbacks and fantasies, plus wry inserts of film clips and complex overlaps of art and life, adorn-for that matter, overwhelm-the story, which is built on flimsy psychological clichés amid the implacable imperatives of desire and disease. Dec 10, 2018 Full Review Glenn Kenny New York Times The energetically crafted, well-acted movie about characters one would go to considerable extremes to avoid in real life is turning into a veritable indie micro-genre. Dec 6, 2018 Full Review Warren Cantrell The Playlist Silver has done something really special with all of this, bringing the stories of these four people together in a sort of relationship mélange that speaks to the ways people can't help but miss the forest for the trees. Rated: A Apr 3, 2019 Full Review Ray Pride Newcity The offhanded, piercing quality of the comedy within the viper's nest of romantic roundelays suggests a cruel Alan Rudolph, and that's more than enough for me. Dec 28, 2018 Full Review Christopher James AwardsCircuit.com The Great Pretenders fails at every genre it pretends to be. Rated: 1/4 Nov 16, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
