What are critics saying?


New York Daily News by

A phallocentric documentary could easily be nothing but snickers and mockery, but the directors offer a work filled with warmth, humor and humanism.


The A.V. Club by Ben Kenigsberg

The Final Member boasts a stranger-than-fiction subject so odd and funny it almost couldn’t miss. But Bekhor and Math make the film much more than a limp gag.


Slant Magazine by Chuck Bowen

A potential barroom joke blossoms into a surprisingly poignant portrait of three aging men wrestling with how to shed their mortal coil.


Village Voice by Heather Baysa

the shock factor was to be expected from the get-go, and so it's not all that shocking. What is compelling, however, is the weird way this film demonstrates the supreme emotional effectiveness of a simple quest narrative.


The Hollywood Reporter by John DeFore

Funny, fascinating, and packing a surprisingly poignant twist, the doc will get plenty of free publicity and, for unsqueamish moviegoers, will live up to the hype.


The Dissolve by Noel Murray

Directors Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math favor a deadpan, clear-eyed, strikingly simple approach that brings out both the humor and the pathos in the story.
