Tangerine (15)

Tangerine (15)

Comedy, Drama

A working girl tears through Tinseltown on Christmas Eve searching for the pimp who broke her heart.

The critical consensus

Bombastic, organic and utterly original, Tangerine is not just a film, it’s a vital, visceral experience.

*****Nikki Baughan, The List, 09/11/2015

A dazzling bauble of melodrama and fast paced merriment.

****(*)Katherine McLaughlin, Little White Lies, 12/11/2015

This is a one-crazy-night picture, a little like Alex Holdridge’s LA indie pic In Search of a Midnight Kiss, from 2007. There’s real energy.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 12/11/2015

Baker shoots Tangerine in a freewheeling, improvisatory style that rekindles memories of John Cassavetes films following equally strung-out and desperate characters.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 13/11/2015

What begins with anger and outrage ends on a sweet note of sisterly solidarity.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 13/11/2015

The characters’ take-us-as-we-are attitude all the more endearing because they’re not trying to present a false picture of themselves.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 14/11/2015

A betrayed sex worker attempts to find her pimp in this bittersweet film shot on an iPhone 5s.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 15/11/2015
