Critics reviews

It’s a little too minimalistic for my tastes; Audley’s poignantly vulnerable performance would’ve been better reinforced by a single perfect pop song at the climactic moment, Fassbinder-style, to counter the starkness with a little romantic glue. Still, at 72 minutes, the film has a deft narrative economy; even with the use of voiceover, Bad Fever shows more than it tells.
