Chicago Reader
Bartlett and Mevoli give appealing performances, and Bell adds to the authenticity by peppering their radical clique with real-life activists.
Properly speaking, Exist is not a protest film but a protest video - the grass-roots medium of choice - and Ms. Bell makes good use of the technology. Mock interviews reinforce a strong documentary impulse, while digital blurs and layering further distance the material from status quo moviemaking.
Village Voice
Exist is prone to posturing. Demonstrating a noble if wishy-washy faith in activism's power to save the world, the film amounts to a brief, earnest howl against apathy--easily dismissible for those unsympathetic to its views and basically useless for everyone else.
New York Post
The story is so contrived and the dialogue so stilted that no amount of talent could save Exist.
