Writing for The Hollywood Reporter, Todd McCarthy called the film “brilliantly original in every way” and “one of the craftiest and funniest love letters ever composed.” A darkly comic mediation on aging and death, the film imagines all the ways director Kirsten Johnson’s father Dick could die. Both hilarious and poignant, Johnson stages inventive and insane death scenarios.
