'Goodbye World' reviews  
The acting by the cast, especially in scenes as an ensemble, was veracious and unlike other films of its ilk, never self-indulgent. I believed in these characters and what they were going through and I didn’t need spectacular special effects to remind me where I was. Highly recommended.

With a realistic scope and interpersonal relationships that sing of sincerity, Goodbye World is the kind of indie that has real potential to break out and find an audience.

The strength of “Goodbye World” is that it understands the foibles of these characters and lets them be as flawed as they are while they are also trying to survive not just the apocalypse but each other.

“Goodbye World” offers its audience a different perspective on what can go wrong during the end of the world, investigating how relationships need personal maintenance in times of tremendous stress.

"The cinematography is lux and engaging—neither Northern California nor any of its stars have looked so good on screen—and the plot moves along at a clip steady enough to let its unconscious air of entitlement and self-satisfaction fly under the radar. In that regard it’s a microcosm: painting an accurate picture of the “haves” of today with voices and relationships of each should mostly ring true for anyone not in full denial." - Jackson Scarlett

Good to see a number of diverse, insightful and positive comments. Sometimes, one has to wonder how many "critics" are reading each others' reviews and going in circles. It's especially good to have Ben receive much-deserved praise, which I definitely agree with, along with some of the weaknesses of the film. However, with 1:40 to try to tell the ensemble tale in smaller and broader contexts, that's a given.

Thanks for compiling and posting them all.
