Here are the reviews so far:
“Alex Goldberg accomplished something very special with his quirky dark comedy… an off-kilter caper that ambitiously stimulates with sharpened wit underlined by indescribable poignancy… Goldberg’s indie darling Closure is delightfully cogent in its peppered presentation making it one of the most robust and refreshing comedies released this year.” Frank Ochieng, Flick Feast

“There have been plenty of movies that have skewered the sunbaked air of Los Angeles and the strange people who breathe it – Mick Jackson’s L.A. Story and Robert Altman’s The Player remain two of my favorites – but folks, if you find somewhere showing writer-director Alex Goldberg’s Closure…you might want to catch this whimsical gem – and make room for its sardonically witty fish-out-of-Midwestern-water tale on the Hollywood-as-another-planet list.” Elias Savada, Film International
