“Aubrey Plaza is outstanding…Anchored by a stunning performance by Plaza, however, it’s endlessly fascinating, and inevitably draws comparisons to such directors as Stanley Kubrick” (The Spool)
“Aubrey Plaza and Christopher Abbott’s performances are stunning…Black Bear is a true must-see, boldly deconstructing its indie sensibility through an inventive narrative framework.” (Battle Royal With Cheese)
“Black Bear is hilarious, with very sharply written but still organic dialogue…the performances are incredible…It’s edgy, odd, and provides an incredible outlet for the talent involved” (Film Inquiry)
