“Since his 2016 debut The Greasy Strangler, [director Jim] Hosking has specialized in terrariums of kooks. His brain works methodically. He’s no sloppy absurdist throwing whatever at the screen to see what sticks. Instead, Hosking gives rhythm to the madness. — In a Hosking film, every character — even the extras — is at once bizarrely unique and part of a clan. — Hosking has a vision, and more often that not, it works. Strip away the madness and the script, co-written with David Wike, is a standard riff on oddballs-on-the-run flicks like True Romance. Except Beverly Luff Linn still doesn’t function like a film that believes in arcs. It takes the shape of a tightrope stunt. The thrill isn’t whether characters will change, it’s whether the actors will be able to sustain the humor. — those who delight in championing the next cult film leader will nod along with [Jemaine] Clement when he grins, Although I don’t know what what’s going on here, I’m having a great time.” – Amy Nicholson / Variety
