REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Egoyan has rounded up an impressive supporting cast, including Amy Ryan, Mireille Enos and Alessandro Nivola. But no one is given the chance to make a memorable impact..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“.."Devil's Knot" ends after the trial, so this movie is the tale of a Salem-style lynch mob. It's as preachy as "The Crucible," with the score permanently set on "mournful"..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]
“..The Devil's Knot isn't a bad film. It's just not a very good one. It's certainly not a film one would expect from Egoyan..”
by Tirdad Derakhshani [Philadelphia Inquirer]
