Themythking’s review published on Letterboxd:
Linklater is a director who makes either good movies or boring movies that are still interesting. I don’t know how he does this but it’s actually kind of impressive. He always makes odd choices like making one of the shots in a two shot standard while the other is a a glance away from looking into the lens. Anyway this is a interesting and boring movie that mainly falls apart because the characters feel more literary than realistic. However, Cate Blanchett is a dynamic force that out shines the material and Kristen Wiig is perfectly cast.
