Movie Info

From acclaimed filmmakers Zachary Cotler and Magdalena Zyzak, and starring Addison Timlin as Hillary Clinton, WHEN I'M A MOTH's "what if..." scenario sees a young Hillary working as a fish monger in Alaska. Possibly an un-biopic of Hillary Rodham set in 1969 Alaska. Possibly a collective dream about a young woman with only the most abstract connection to the politician. Possibly both.

Critic Reviews for When I'm a Moth

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Seldom has a "transcendental" cinematic vocabulary been so heinously misapplied to material in which clumsy literal-mindedness and ponderous abstraction are already locking horns.

Earnest, pretentious and pointless.

April 15, 2019 | Full Review…

The concept's self-conscious pretentiousness is as off-putting as it is tedious.

September 16, 2021 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

May all cinematic experiments, conceptually imperfect as they may be, hold our attention with the same poetic urgency.

September 1, 2021 | Full Review…

It's impossible to buy into as a general coming-of-age drama, but it also fails to say anything substantive about Clinton or the American political landscape.

August 30, 2021 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It's a fingernails-on-chalkboard kind of bad movie, not the fun kind. You will laugh, you will cry-but both from sheer pain.
