Movie Reviews

  • true, the stars are very good at what they do, but so what?
    1.5 of 4 by Kyle Smith [New York Post ]
  • tough to watch: a seismic jolt of violence both physical and psychological, with bruises both visible and deeply burrowed
    4 of 5 by Alexis Loinaz [Chicago Tribune ]
  • their performances are so raw, so visceral, you feel the blows, wince at the bruises, cry at their pain
    by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • the performances carry the film and occasionally lift it beyond its kitchen-sink lower-depths doldrums
    Review rate : B by Peter Rainer [Christian Science Monitor ]
  • the film's shots are calm and composed, almost meditative; there are no canted camera angles or jangling cuts, and much of the violence occurs off-screen
    by Jeannette Catsoulis [NPR ]
  • the film doesn't fetishize the violence, often keeping the worst of it offscreen
    by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the characters are trapped, suffocated, pushed through a story that gives them very little room or time to figure themselves out, and that finally turns their feelings into the wan stuff of fable
    by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • isn't easy viewing, and surely isn’t pretty, but his actors are remarkable
    3 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • brutal, indeed
    3 of 4 by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • British miserabilism at its most numbingly brutal and blunt
    by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice ]
  • a warning flag for queasy viewers that things won't be pretty here, but those who stay just a bit longer come to see his immediate regret over the matter
    Review rate : B+ by William Goss [Film.com ]
