  • Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
    • Excerpt: Per amare The End of the Tour non occorre essere lettori di Wallace: non è un film per iniziati, nè vuole percorrere scorciatoie psicologiche, con l’illusione di spiegare il senso di una vita così bruscamente interrotta
  • Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
    • Excerpt: an honorable depiction of a beautiful mind unfettered by the trappings of a generic biopic.
  • Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: A creative and engrossing film about two writers trying to determine what is important to each other.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Like an energetic terrier and a cautious great dane sussing each other up, Eisenberg and Segel are an unlikely yet perfect pairing in director James Ponsoldt’s dual character study, one which plays like the road trip version of “My Dinner with Andre.”
  • Jim Dixon @ Examiner.com
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: The film doesn’t simply give us the content of these conversations, which are fascinating enough on their own merits. It offers up context for and within those discussions…
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Compassionate and conversational, challenging the audience to decide which of these men is the more authentic – and honest.
  • Blake Howard @ Graffiti With Punctuation
    • Excerpt: The End of the Tour will get you to re-evaluate accomplishment, fame, writing, and most importantly, candy combinations for maximum satisfaction.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Not necessarily a journey, but a fluid conversation about…well, just about everything. Remember the best talk you ever had? Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg will make it seem as if you were chatting about the weather.
  • Jared Mobarak @ Jared Mobarak Reviews
    • Excerpt: In all honesty The End of the Tour’s love letter is captivating enough for the layman and intimate enough fans of Wallace looking for answers via his words during this hectic period. It becomes a memorial rather than expose, the only thing it could after hearing its subject admit he didn’t live the life that sells magazines.
  • [New – 1/28/16] | Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Though for most it will succeed more as an exceptional acting showcase than as a revealing portrait of the artist as a young man, it’s nonetheless a worthy effort on that basis alone.
