Consensus: This modest, unpretentious character study astutely captures the emotional states of the 20-something slacker.

David Jenkins
Time Out

This is an undoubtedly modest yet wholly pleasurable tale about the difficulties that come with letting go of youth.

By simply re-creating what he has observed, Bujalski has created a tender, funny and stealthily affecting portrait of youthful powerlessness and frustration.

Smart, subtle and excruciatingly honest.

With Marnie, Dollenmayer has managed to transform a sad sack into an indie screen goddess.

L.A. Weekly

This isn't improvisation, but rather an adroitly achieved randomness -- the perfect syntax for a generation-defining work about a generation marked by its very lack of definition.

Times (UK)

Refreshingly unpolished, the film uses pained silences like punctuation.

Hollywood Reporter

While the film has a true lived-in feel, and demonstrates a burgeoning talent on the part of its young auteur, its portrait of young slackers lacks the freshness to overcome its all too vivid malaise.

A beautifully observant and wholly unpretentious film with roots more in Cassavetes than Sundance-style showbiz.

Jon Fortgang

Not actually that funny ha ha, but a sensitive and unforced little film about the aimlessness of post-graduate life.

One thing to know about me, I am NO fan of the summer blockbuster film. Garish special effects, unrelatably attractive movie stars and inauthentic dialogue… More
