Movie Reviews

  • without providing a solution to the conundrum, the film leaves an appreciation for that phenomenon of human behavior
    Review rate : B by Jules Brenner [ ]
  • too many Holocaust dramas rely on built-in sympathies and long-settled historical assumptions
    Review rate : B by Mark Keizer [Boxoffice Magazine ]
  • this film is a bit of a hybrid as the action does not remain continuously on Socha, although he has the dramatic character arc
    Review rate : B by Laura Clifford [Reeling Reviews ]
  • the script has its share of hackish melodrama, but the pacing is classical, the compositions mysterious and painterly, the palette of deep blacks reminiscent of Rembrandt
    by David Edelstein [New York Magazine ]
  • shows us how extraordinarily fraught that choice was
    Review rate : B by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times ]
  • real life brims with startling atrocities as well as cliches, and this film is full of both
    by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine ]
  • it's the rare film that should not introduce new story elements or characters past its first act
    by Jaime N. Christley [Slant Magazine ]
  • it's a transformation as wrenching to watch as it is vital to remember
    Review rate : B by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
  • it is suspenseful, horrifying and at times intensely moving
    by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • it is not easy to watch, but it is impossible to turn away
    by Wendy Weinstein [Film Journal International ]
  • it feels more like a requirement of the genre than a reflection of deteroriating inner lives
    by Michelle Orange [Movieline ]
  • here, courage and heroism are defined as much by ruthless cunning, dumb luck and the ability to screen out others' pain as by any heroic derring-do
    by Ella Taylor [NPR ]
  • harrowing and rewarding epic to run long so it would make viewers feel that they're in the sewers as well
    3 of 4 by V.A. Musetto [New York Post ]
  • give the familiar elements a fresh intensity, while the cramped, lightless, sewage-filled surroundings fill the film with choking claustrophobia
    Review rate : B+ by Tasha Robinson [AV Club ]
  • begins in the filmmaker's best off-kilter mode
    by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice ]
  • arduous drama is more ironic and multi-faceted than most such tales
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a daringly murky-looking movie that demands viewers enter the void too and meet Socha and his Jews as real
    Review rate : A- by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly ]
