    Wow, Bo Burnham has made something pretty special here. With major help from Elsie Fisher as Kayla, a wonderfully drawn and relatable character, my favorite performance so far of 2018. 1 year 7 months ago

    A beautifully and tragically real depiction of anxiety in the early teens. Bo Burnham has created a movie worth watching and worth discussing with children and adults. 1 year 8 months ago

    The spoiler is cemented in my mind. It is one of the very best scenes of the year. I was anxious beyond my wildest expectations. The film is honest and real, and I could relate to it a lot more than others despite them saying it’s relatable. I laughed out loud at several scenes, and as much as it has to do with Burnham, it is also the incredible actors. It takes guts to direct mostly children for your first feature, but Burnham did just fine with the help of the wonderful Elsie Fisher, who turns in one of 2018’s best performances. It goes directions one would not expect and mostly abandons tropes and cliches. All this said, it left me a bit empty in terms of what it all meant. Maybe this is just me coming from the sledgehammer that was BlacKkKlansman, but Eighth Grade didn’t seem to be too much to leave you with. One takeaway I had was that it displays a sharply critical view of social media culture, a viewpoint I am a strong advocate of. 1 year 7 months ago
