Critic Consensus: Bad Hair's unwieldy ambitions are easy to respect -- even if the film's tonal jumble and uneven execution are impossible to ignore.

With echoes of camp, B-movies, '80s hip-hop, and female empowerment films of that era, Bad Hair is stunningly ambitious, and that overwhelms most of my issues with it.

The impression is of a provocative logline that Simien never quite figured out how to expand into a satisfying movie; once you get the thrust of the story, it's mostly repetitions on a theme.

This is Elle Lorraine's feature-film debut, and she's steadily remarkable: assured, intelligent, deadpan, heartbreaking, and finally, terrifying. Her face alone could carry this movie - it's that expressive, that connective.

"Bad Hair" has plenty to say - about the plight of black women in particular and blackness in popular culture in general - but his movie can't settle on laughing off the conflict or regarding it with dread.

Top Critic

Despite many deliriously enjoyable sequences, this is thin material, only fitfully funny, messily executed and more silly than scary, which makes it bit of a disappointment.

Simien has a steady handle on his serio-comic tone, at once sly, resonant, and horrific.
