“Papierniak’s film is energetic, jam-packed with talent and has a likable indie throwback feel” - Katie Walsh, LA Times

“Charmingly profane, with a buzzing riot-grrrl soundtrack, “Izzy” is a stylish twist on an ’80s trope: Here it’s the woman as pathetic supplicant, trying to win back someone who’s moved on.”
- Sarah Stewart, NY Post

“Izzy Gets The F*ck Across Town is as delightfully offbeat as the title suggests, with an engaging and heartfelt story. Smartly written with stellar acting and deft direction, this hilarious movie demands to be seen as soon as possible.
- Film Threat


“An electric lead performance and a growing sense of self make it worth your while to see that Izzy gets where she’s going.” - David Elrich, Indiewire

“Davis is truly magnetic…Izzy Gets the F*** Across Town is an effective little indie with fantastic performances” - Kyle Anderson, Nerdist

“Raw and commanding, this is the sort of potential breakthrough role Davis has needed for years, and writer-director Christian Papierniak’s debut feature grows effectively bittersweet as it goes on.” - Austin Trunick, Under the Radar

“Christian Papierniak’s Izzy Gets the Fuck Across Town surges from Venice Beach to Los Feliz on brash punk energy. It’s powered by the blast and scream of Heavens to Betsy tracks; by the profane and often amusingly ill-informed sloganeering from a succession of flakes and cheats and shut-ins; by jagged editing rhythms that jolt you out of scenes and shots just before you expect to be but usually just after the sharpest line. In montage sequences of Mackenzie Davis’s Izzy doggedly schlepping any way that she can, Papierniak and his director of photography, Alexandre Naufel, capture not just the invigorating beauty of the California sun but also its weight and brain-scrambling harshness, especially when — like Izzy — you find yourself stuck between it and the pavement. The film is about being overwhelmed by Los Angeles, its sprawling indifference, but also about finding your place in it — and even, at times, its welcoming warmth.” - Alan Schurstuhl, Village Voice
