Critic Reviews of "Drunkboat"New York PostJuly 13, 2012
"Drunkboat" might have come off via nothing more than acting ability and a good heart, if the dialogue didn't amount mostly to aimless chit-chat.Los Angeles TimesJuly 13, 2012
The burnished smear of Lisa Rinzler's photography is a plus, but "Drunkboat" is ultimately the kind of pet project that never traverses from personal to powerful.New York TimesJuly 12, 2012
Though studied and grating at times, "Drunkboat" does sustain a distinct, odd tone. Like its characters it's dreamily restless and prey to its own quixotic ideas.Seattle TimesJuly 12, 2012
This enigmatic coming-of-age movie often seems destined to sail off the deep end. Yet it rights itself just often enough to keep you watching.Village VoiceJuly 10, 2012
[An] incoherent drama.Shockya.comJuly 30, 2012
A passion project ill suited to cinematic adaptation, or at least sludgy, unresolved, mannered and grating in its realized incarnation.Cinemalogue.comJuly 25, 2012
... feels like an intimate, idiosyncratic acting workshop that might have worked better on stage.NYC Movie GuruJuly 13, 2012
Undercooked, lazy and frustratingly underwhelming despite solid performances.Slant MagazineJuly 12, 2012
Drunkboat is a "small" movie that plays like a mawkish, Friedberg/Seltzer riff on a small movie.RedEyeJuly 12, 2012
Horribly written, shockingly amateur. Contrived and exhausting don't begin to summarize this inert disaster.St. Paul Pioneer PressJuly 12, 2012
In the end, "Drunkboat" is no "Glengarry Glen Ross" or "American Buffalo," and even if it were, the real Mamet has always worked better onstage than on film.Boston PhoenixJuly 10, 2012
Held up from release for years, probably because nobody knew what to make of it, the film deserves a look, and Meyer is a talent worth watching.
