Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A darkly comic psychodrama about academic pressure and irrational paranoia.
Fresh: Overly one-note in its singular p.o.v., the pic nevertheless offers a welcome variation on the conquering frat boy or Ferris Bueller-type adolescent.
Fresh: This subtly engrossing psychological thriller plays like an intellectual version of Fatal Attraction, minus the sex and the dead bunny. And that's meant as a compliment.
Fresh: The acting is disciplined (particularly impressive in that the characters are uniformly unsympathetic) and the timing is carefully worked out with regards to Paul's slow-motion breakdown.
Dark, Funny, Amazing
I loved this film. Even though I normally don't like psychological thrillers, I found Nancy, Please to be so funny and interesting, albeit in a very dark way, that I couldn't help but be invested in the narrative right until the very end. This is a great film and I recommend watching it to anyone who is willing to look beyond some of the larger films out there to the truly fantastic hidden gems like this.
A must see
Dark, eerie, and makes you feel the paranoia that completely embodies Will Rogers' character. There are vibes of dark drama, horror, and it's hard to look away. A nightmare worth watching
Wonderful film that really gets into the head of the main character, Eleonore Hendricks is fantastic as the brutal and complicated Nancy. If you've ever suffered writer's block and looked for anything to pin your paranoia on, this film is for you.
