Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: None of these characters, no matter how trashed-up for the down-market occasion, are believable.
Rotten: A Single Shot aims to serve up gritty backwoods noir but misses its target by some distance.
Fresh: The film charts no new territory but is terrifically cast and, like its source novel, long on atmosphere.
Fresh: David M. Rosenthal's sturdy, nasty rural noir, based on Matthew F. Jones's novel, is so sharp and rusted through that, after taking it in, you'll likely need a tetanus shot.
A neonoir in the flavor of Winters Bone
Incredible performances, interesting story - keeps you on the edge. Really enjoyed it!
Sam Rockwell and Joe Anderson = PERFECTION
A Single Shot
Dark and suspenseful. Sam Rockwell at his best. Too bad it didn't have a wider or longer release in theaters.
