Critic Reviews of "Advantageous"New York TimesJune 25, 2015
A picture emerges that at times suggests a strange if alluring mash-up of "Stella Dallas" and Michel Foucault, with a smidgen of Jean-Luc Godard's "Alphaville" and a hint of Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale."Entertainment WeeklyJune 25, 2015
Unfortunately, the stilted script and portentous direction make Advantageous, a film written and directed by Asian-American women, a missed opportunity.AV ClubJune 25, 2015
As in a lot of good sci-fi, the movie is set in a particular world, but driven by the characters that inhabit it.San Francisco ChronicleJune 25, 2015
Achieves much on a relatively meager budget (it has an impressive futuristic visual design), and the last half hour is so irresistibly creepy that it's sure to invoke discussion after the screening.New York Daily NewsJune 24, 2015

A thought-provoking sci-fi drama about parenting, education, the commodification of women's bodies, and female unemployment.The Young FolksJuly 22, 2015
...one of the best science-fiction films of this past year and further proof that female directors know how to deliver on genre films.Mark Leeper's ReviewsJuly 14, 2015
ADVANTAGEOUS is a science fiction film with a much higher budget for art direction than it has for special effects.The DissolveJune 24, 2015
Advantageous makes a superb showcase for Kim, a hugely underrated and underutilized talent.Slant MagazineJune 24, 2015
The dialogue is so disaffected it's as if humans were replicants even before going through the aforementioned twin-making procedure.Eye for FilmFebruary 04, 2015
As with the best science fiction, the technology of the future is used to explore the human condition of the present.
