Movie Reviews

  • the melodrama is played quite straightforwardly here, even as the dialogue frequently borders on parody
    by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice ]
  • the film isn't fully successful in generating the same depth of feeling in viewers
    by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the film can't locate the bone-deep sense of tragedy of Leslie Schwartz's novel - it just keeps belching out empty, grief-stricken histrionics devoid of insight

    by Glenn Heath Jr. [Slant Magazine ]

  • angels Crest may have something in common with Beautiful Boy, but it really wants to be The Sweet Hereafter
    1.5 of 5 by Norm Schrager [Filmcritic.com ]
  • angels Crest has weaknesses that are tough to overcome
    Review rate : C by Noel Murray [AV Club ]
  • an entire plotline is devoted to Jane's son and pregnant girlfriend's reaction to his mother's set up but it is so heavy-handed that it sits ill at ease alongside the more subtler scenes elsewhere
    3 of 5 by Amber Wilkinson [Eye for Film ]
