Perry’s radical technique here is to use comic exaggeration to plunge viewers into the headspace of the central duo over the first half of the film, then subtly encouraging a re-evaluation of them during the second.

Mostly everything about The Color Wheel’s climactic post-grad party… nearly throws the film off its rails, but the subsequent 10-minute pillow chat between JR and Colin makes everything right again, in addition to radically deepening the film’s emotional landscape. The Color Wheel is pretty much virtuosic in its wall-to-wall chatter; the words are progressively meaningless so as to avoid any possible dead air that might force inner confrontation.

…[It’s] among the most significant American films of the last decade-plus and a key work of the modern independent cinema… When The Color Wheel suddenly pivots, in its final act, from a comic register to something more tragic, the effect is more pronounced than a simple tonal shift; instead it feels as though the parameters of the film have changed. An almost undetectable pressure, you realize, has been building through the picture.
