Caitlin Plays Herself

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Why would she return for more of this guy's thin gruel? the film asks. Why do we?"
‑ Paul Brunick, New York Times
"Although we can glimpse Caitlin's vulnerability and doubt from scene to scene, she might be the most well-armed and well-fortified protagonist Joe Swanberg's ever given us."
‑ Jaime N. Christley, Slant Magazine
"Composed largely of fixed, lengthy medium shots and long shots, Caitlin Plays Herself is chopped up into discrete, self-enclosed tableaux, kind of like an American Vivre sa vie without the passion, drama or gorgeous imagery."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"It is possible that one of Swanberg's movies is not a complete waste of time, but Caitlin Plays Herself, written in collaboration with its starlet, Caitlin Stainkin, is not the one."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
