“It’s a film about my inability to love.”

Benjamin is self-effacingly written and directed by gifted British comedian Simon Amstell…Appealingly restrained and perfectly shaped at under 90 minutes, Benjamin maintains its softly barbed wit and sweet-and-sour intimacy to the end…[Amstell] will have high expectations of his own to meet next time out.“Benjamin” wrings a lot of warmly perceptive, occasionally acidic humor…cinematographer David Pimm, whose gorgeous, dusky compositions capture the low neon shimmer of a London bar or the oddly comforting gloom of a shabby Victorian studio apartment with only a moderate shift in palette.” – Guy Lodge, Variety
