Ricky Jay appears in Justin Lerner’s The Automatic Hate
Opening this week in Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco.
A compelling bit of family drama that packs a corrosive punch.
—Los Angeles Times
Pitch perfect…A rare film
It’s a feast of rich and nuanced performances, although special note should be made of Ricky
Jay’s incredible turn as a (maybe?) deposed patriarch. The Automatic Hate is a twisty and
twitchy dark comedy that will make you run home and double-check your family tree.
—Mill Valley Film Festival
By far, one of the highlights is Ricky Jay in the role of Joshua, Alexis’ father and patriarch of one half of the family.
Joshua is an intense, intimidating character, and Jay throws everything he has into a stellar performance.
It’s a role you might not immediately picture an actor like Jay in, but one that he absolutely owns.
—Ain’t It Cool News
With the effortless and beautiful acting by the entire cast, the audience is able to place themselves in individual
and experience the movie through their eyes.
—Austin Fusion Magazine
I would watch this film again if it was just a 90-minute-long shot of Jay, whose face is like a map of the world,
dropping Uncle Joshua’s deadpan philosophical and emotional bombs.
N.B. Ricky Jay is not now, nor has he ever been, on “Facebook.”
