Lena Dunham, the writer-director-star of the microbudget Tiny Furniture, has a distinctive comedic take on the world – a kind of haggard spiritedness.
88
The movie is full, assured and extremely wry.
75
A funny, affecting movie about growing up in the shadow of a formidable mom.

It's hard enough for a director to work with actors, but if you're working with your own family in your own house and depicting passive aggression, selfishness and discontent and you produce a film this good, you can direct just about anybody in just about anything.

What Dunham lacks in polish, she makes up for in her ability to observe her generation, with the hardest truths coming at her own expense.
70
What the film does well is capture the confusion of the identity abyss of twentysomethings of a certain social class.
63
Dunham has been justly praised for her determination in getting Tiny Furniture made, but the movie itself has been overpraised as a result.
63
In skewering the neuroses of New York bohemians, Durham has left us too little to care about.
60
Boxoffice Magazine
A small film about enormous fears.
50
A tolerably warm bath of postcollegiate self-pity, salted with irony and self-mockery.
