Our take

This fiercely empathetic examination of pathological loneliness is the debut feature from indie auteur Dustin Guy Defa (Person to Person). Featuring a remarkable lead performance from Kentucker Audley as an aspiring stand-up comedian, Bad Fever is a prickly yet poignant study in social anxiety.
