Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Molly's Theory of Relativity has its fleeting moments. But writer-director Jeff Lipsky's purpose always seems just beyond reach."
‑ Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
""Molly's Theory of Relativity" is anti-cinema."
‑ Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
"Jeff Lipsky's world is somewhere between Venus and Mars, and I'm still not sure if that means Earth..."
‑ Elias Savada, Film Threat
"Something of an intriguing, if not entirely successful, exoticism."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
""Molly's Theory of Relativity" shows how our parents live inside us, and how our relationships with them continue to evolve even after they're gone."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"It's really about Lipsky's love of his own words, as every character serves as nothing more than a mouthpiece for identically insipid dialogue."
‑ Marc Mohan, Oregonian
"For all of "Molly's" naturalistic, low-budget indie ambience, the film is a fantastical curiosity, whose indulgences will try one's patience."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"Lipsky is clearly reaching for something grand and cosmic here, but the results are mostly just confounding."
‑ Scott Foundas, Village Voice
"The characters never sound like they're actually talking to one another, but rather delivering Jeff Lipsky's echo-chamber monologues."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine
