Hause’s review published on Letterboxd:
I feel like...this is a movie that I both should but also want to write a big text dump about. But that takes time that I don't really want to spend right now. I suppose that I should probably just say a bit about my thoughts on it.
This movie was a waste. It was a waste of so much. It was a waste of money. It was a waste of talent. It was a waste of purpose. It was a waste of a fascinating character. This entire movie was dissolved down into a simple "society BAD" allegory shoved into a story that was so clearly plagiarized (oh sorry I mean HOMAGED) from Taxi Driver and the King of Comedy that it's embarrassing. Phillips has brought absolutely nothing meaningful to the table. It's a miracle that there's so much shit in this movie and absolutely none of it has any purpose. It's so blatantly empty.
