Village Voice
Despite its unusual beginnings, the friendship doesn't offer much narrative juice. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
The film points toward a rich and complicated story that only partly makes it onto the screen. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
The more Shepard & Dark rewinds through their shared history, the more the film blossoms into something far richer than a simple tribute to a long, beautiful friendship—it becomes an ode to a long-lost era of bohemia, an insightful look into male psychology and pathology, a valentine to the art of letter writing and an illustration of how the past is never dead, because it’s not even past.

The Playlist
There’s always been something romantic and powerful about relationships primarily built on letter-writing, and that’s true for Shepard and Dark too. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
The good-looking, easygoing doc settles in with its two subjects, offering not just an intimate perspective on the playwright's biography but some touching reflections on the comforts and perils of long-term friendship. Full Review
