Critic Reviews of "Barista"VarietyNovember 23, 2015
Thanks to director Rock Baijnauth's playful, nonjudgmental approach to these obsessive characters, the whole enterprise comes across as endearingly -- and perhaps even admirably -- ridiculous, rather than laughably so.Chicago ReaderNovember 05, 2015
I found the competition and the participants preposterous.Austin ChronicleNovember 05, 2015
Baijnauth struck gold with his five baristas. Their collective passion steers the sometimes-unfocused narrative, and their perfectionist brushes with madness give this celebratory portrait a slight edge.Slant MagazineNovember 01, 2015
It captures the frustration and the longing of forever wanting more and better at the expense of casualness of being.
