Consensus: A dark and whimsical exploration of human existence that challenges viewers as much as it rewards them.

David Jenkins
Time Out

Not a crowd-pleaser by any measure, but a mature, bold and recklessly inquisitive film, however unpleasant it is to consume in the moment.

What a strange, trippy, touching movie The Future is.

Fernando F. Croce
MUBI

How much further July can push her blend of whimsy and pain remains to be seen, but this is arguably the strangest study of artistic and parental anxiety since Eraserhead.

Miranda July may be a bit too weird for her own good. On the other hand, it is a glorious weird.

July is a provocative and honorably independent filmmaker, but given the meager rewards of investing our time, "The Future" wasn't worth the wait.

As the writer, director and actor, July does a fantastic job in merging all of these odd bits and pieces such as the talking cat, frozen time and conversations with the moon, making a film that is so evocative of a mood and state of being.

Provides plenty of material for July junkies as well as July detractors.

Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle

At times - not all the time, just enough to notice - July gets it backward.

Parece apenas interessado em lançar o meme dos "Lolcatz" como gênero cinematográfico.

Another eccentric film from director, performer, and actress Miranda July. That's the nicest thing I can say about this film without getting clouded in… More

This movie is incredibly weird. I mean, trippy as hell. But it's really good too :D

In one way we should envy the caveman. When he looked at all the possibilities of his life, there couldn't be many, and he may have been content with he… More

Unusual little film that won't be to all tastes, but if you are familiar with Miranda July, you will probably really like this. It is a little more out… More
