Golden Exits's user reviews

Los Angeles Times
9.0

This exquisitely textured ensemble portrait is a gentler, more forgiving piece of work, not least because the filmmaker's jabs ? and his sympathies, such as they are ? feel more evenly distributed.

There aren?t a lot of people to necessarily sympathize with here, but the collective swell of a thousand nagging disappointments, both identifiable and not, make Perry?s film strangely haunting despite the bourgeois mundanity of its events.

With his intimacy drama Golden Exits, Perry strays from his typical fare of people behaving badly to, well, people behaving not quite as badly and certainly with more believable motivation.

"Despite the momentum for 'Golden Exits' heading into the Sundance premiere, it didn?t land.The existential problems of beautiful urbane people is usually a safe bet for this crowd, but nothing in the relationship dynamics here managed to stick."

"The unstated angst, desire, suspicion, frustration and emotional turmoil is almost entirely expressed by Keegan DeWitt?s extraordinary musical score, which runs like an underground river through this elegant and supremely expressive gem of a film."

"Many will accuse Perry of navel-gazing here, but that's partly the point: Golden Exits means to frustrate, even to abrade, in its coolly articulate portrait of cosseted people who want for nothing and vaguely desire everything."

"Only a filmmaker as talented as Alex Ross Perry could make a movie as misbegotten as Golden Exits."
