  • Reception

    Drunktown's Finest received positive reviews from critics. Geoff Berkshire of Variety, said in his review that "Freeland takes her time bringing her characters together, allowing the audience an opportunity to marinate in the unique experiences of each individual first. The slow-burn approach is smartly executed, and the intersecting plotlines veer toward schematic only during Sick Boy and Felixia’s chance encounter at a grocery store, which leads to an eventful night out." John DeFore in his review for The Hollywood Reporter praised the film by saying that "Native American themes get a fresh look in three-handed drama." Gary Green of HeyUGuys gave the film three stars by saying that "Drunktown's Finest - A low-budget picture with bigger things on its mind."
