Critic Reviews for Mercury in Retrograde

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

[An] observant, nuanced indie.

April 20, 2020 | Full Review…

Writer-director-producer Michael Glover Smith's Mercury in Retrograde is a smart, funny, quietly effective and authentic slice of older millennial life.

February 15, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Poignant and emotional, the film delves into the our human condition through relationship situations that are totally relatable.

April 17, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

This is only the second feature from [Michael Glover] Smith, and unfortunately, it is his inexperience, not his very real skill, that comes through.

January 29, 2019 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

Public musings and private confessions get louder and more pointed to observe the further Smith takes them.

November 30, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Aiming to be insightful melodrama about the communication barriers between men and women, and the true meaning of love, Mercury in Retrograde is hoisted on its own petard and ends up distancing rather than embracing salient topics it attempts to tackle.
