"Quiet, clever, and a whole lot of fun."
— Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
"In its minimalist quotidian way, Showing Up is a movie made by someone in masterly control of her medium."
— Owen Gleiberman, Variety
"Showing Up is a rare film about the art world that presents a scene of artists who won’t be getting rich off their work."
— Sophie Monks, Kaufman Hyperallergic
"Showing Up is perhaps Reichardt’s most grounded and least impressionistic film, but it is still more than thoughtful and enjoyable and beautiful."
— Fran Hoepfner, TheWrap
"Like the distinctive artwork made by Showing Up’s sculptor protagonist, Kelly Reichardt’s eighth feature is beautifully crafted, a modest gem that grows in impact the more one examines it."
— Tim Grierson, Screen Daily
"This beautifully acted, expertly modulated film is a work of such enveloping gentleness that even the worst crises are simply absorbed into the fabric of life and work. While the ending might have been corny in a less subtle director’s hands, here it’s quietly restorative. We don’t deserve Kelly Reichardt."
— David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
"Like the discreet, uncluttered canvass of her works— minimalist, spare, and with just enough inviting details to inspire your curiosity—Reichardt leaves generous space and room for the viewer to contemplate. And I would argue the captivating and delicately considered Showing Up leaves much to consider about why we make art and what we’re trying to say while making it."
