REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film is not nearly as evocative as Egoyan's 1997 masterpiece The Sweet Hereafter (also about children who died tragically), it is still an intrinsically fascinating story..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..Egoyan's cool gaze fails to fully serve the boiling narrative of Devil's Knot, a story that seems destined to forever elude a satisfactory resolution..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..the grief, the madness of the community, the plain stupidity of the cops, the mass protests that followed the convictions, the horrible power of it all - none of it comes across in this drab film..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
