Listen Up Philip

Out Now On-Demand

A multitude of frustrations plague a writer in this indie dark comedy. Features a great pairing in Rushmore's Jason Schwartzman and Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss.

With his second novel still in the waiting line to be published and his relationship with his girlfriend photographer (Moss) slowly crumbling, self-indulgent author Philip (Schwartzman) is offered a retreat getaway by his idol in order to pay more attention to the one person who needs it the most: himself.

It's a familiar tale, but one told by Perry with immense filmmaking verve and novelistic flourish...

Hollywood Reporter


[An] indisputably talented work for its risk-taking, dark humour and barbed portraiture of creative individuals...

Los Angeles Times


While the intolerance fueling this dark, existential comedy won't be to everyone's liking, the film's cerebral beat-down is a strange and sardonic thing of beauty.

New York Times


Words do more than hurt, they also slash and burn in this sharp, dyspeptic, sometimes gaspingly funny exploration of art and life, men and women, being and nonbeing, and the power and limits of language.
