Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Director Sebastian Silva seems to be whispering that we shouldn't be taken in by the movie's casual, spontaneous feel, that deep matters are afoot. I'm not sold.
Fresh: [Cera] has transformed himself from one of the most irritating actors of his generation to one of the best.
Fresh: "Crystal Fairy" isn't going to be the mind-expanding movie buzz that blows your mind, but in its laconic, trippy way it gets under the skin.
Fresh: Part drug comedy, part psychological drama, the movie is slight, but only superficially so.
And then the ending was a real non-event
A Peaceful, Trippy Road Trip
I went in not knowing much about this movie.
I thought it was a simple and heartfelt movie about people connecting and being transformed through sharing a drug-fueled day on the beach. I enjoyed how small and subtle it was. I thought the ending was wonderfully acted and filmed.
I can see how this would be a difficult film to market. It’s not an event, it’s not easy to describe. It’s like a beautiful little poem. Thanks to the filmmakers. I had a lovely trip.
