91
Wide-eyed, deadpan and, more often than not, note-perfect.
88
The most devastating spoof of reality TV since Albert Brooks' 1978 "Real Life."
80
Smith and Fitzgerald are funny, feisty, poignant, and altogether realistic. Will they end up lovers, friends, side-by-side corpses? Their sharp performances make Series 7 as frighteningly addictive as crack, or even "Survivor."
80
Whether Series 7, filmed on digital video for less than $1 million, is reactive or prescient doesn’t change the fact that it’s a dead-on parody of the form.
75
A gritty, immediate, down-and-dirty satire with a down-and-dirty look.
75
Unpretentious and brashly exploitative.
75
Series 7 does exactly what independent cinema should -- challenge audiences while it entertains.
