“..well-intended story as more of a highlights reel of troubled behavior than as an organically unfolding narrative..”
by Gary Goldstein [Los Angeles Time]
“..too many directions can be as much of a liability for a movie as too few, and “Mighty Fine” heads in all of them..”
by Mark Feeney [Boston Globe]
2 of 5

“..the narrative structure of the movie is that things just sort of happen..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..the movie is so insular directorially that nothing is really made of the New Orleans setting..”
by David Noh [Film Journal International]
“..the movie does not dwell on her Holocaust experience..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..the mood is generally melodramatic and ends as mushy..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]
2.5 of 4

“..the film doesn't have a third act, simply excusing itself at the 75-minute point..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..storylines get dropped or fail to connect and minor characters drift in and out of the narrative..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“..only wish that the material he had to work with was stronger than movie-of-the-week fare..”
by Christine N. Ziemba [Paste Magazine]
1.5 of 4

“..not everyone's experiences are apt fodder for fictionalized treatment and/or that Goodstein lacks the imaginative means to transform her childhood into compelling cinema..”
by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine]
2 of 5

“..nondescript as made-for-pennies independents come..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
