Critic Reviews for Ingrid Goes West
By the time the film builds to a conclusion full of forced conflict, the subtle insight of its early scenes feel as forgotten as a Facebook message you haven't replied to in a month.
... after an opening montage that ridicules the worst excesses of social-media myth-making ("This is me and my wonderful life!"), the movie has little left to say.
An appealing cast gives its all to a highly-charged satire that stays as skin-deep as a selfie.
Writer-director Matt Spicer makes his feature debut with a horribly enjoyable satire, painted in hard-edged, acrid colours: the colours of an Instragram post, in fact.
The satire here works so well precisely because it is so accurately observed.
Audience Reviews for Ingrid Goes West
Of course Plaza is the perfect fit for an obsessive fan / stalker Ingrid. The beginning is particularly funny, mocking the instagram craze and its participants on both sides, but never entirely giving up on its deeply flawed characters. While things get a little more dramatic later on, the humor does turn darker but it's abandoned altogether. The solution works, too. LA, Venice and Joshua Tree look amazing and the actors all fill their roles with life. Well done.
Really enjoyed this one. Definitely be watching it again. So relevant to all the falseness online and I really enjoyed Ingrid’s stalker tendencies!
I'm super uncomfortable in a really good way.
