★★★★ review by jamawive on Letterboxd
I laughed out loud, a lot. The premise isn't particularly novel, and satires of pretentious artistes and their patrons and hangers-on have certainly been done before, but this worked in a strangely intimate way. Wyatt Cenac is just completely fresh and believable as the mild-mannered writer having the night from hell.

★★★½ review by Bobby Analog on Letterboxd
This is a super fun diversion, comprised of everything I love: non-character reaction shots, social captivity, class weirdness, and banal misunderstandings.
Studios: Give Laura Terruso a gigantic bag of money with a "$" on it and let her make a big-budget comedy.
