Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""A Love Affair of Sorts" answers the question of whether you can make a feature film with a Flip camera and leaves open the question of whether you can make a good one."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Endlessly fascinated by the idea that some people are endlessly fascinated with themselves? David Guy Levy has made a movie perfectly suited to you."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"An occasionally intriguing navel-gazing misfire, but its unverifiable claim to be the first feature film shot entirely on flip cameras eventually comes across as nothing more than an excuse for stylistic sloppiness."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
"Epic navel-gazing and interminably low-stakes visual artistry."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"A physically taxing movie, jiggling and off-center and filled with dizzying whip pans."
‑ Alison Willmore, AV Club
"An amateurish and tedious romantic drama about two irritating people and two flip cameras."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"You show me your camera, and I'll show you mine. That sums up the low-budget indie "A Love Affair of Sorts.""
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Dull diary-film shoots for life/art profundity but misses by miles."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"Billed as the first feature film to be shot on a flip camera, A Love Affair of Sorts looks it."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine
