Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Ms. Fidell ... has a fine eye but not the makings of a feature-length movie here and, it quickly becomes clear, isn't interested in this relationship or the moral, ethical and legal issues it raises. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Sep 5, 2013

Rotten: As first features go, A Teacher demonstrates a willingness to provoke, but doesn't seem to understand the minimum expectations most audiences place on films in terms of both incident and characterization. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Jan 22, 2013

Rotten: Glimpses of the relationship's dynamics can't overcome the missing sense of how these two first connected, an increasingly problematic void at the movie's core. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Sep 5, 2013

Rotten: Fidell seems ill-prepared to steer the film into strictly psychological territory, resulting in a project that loses its fraught sense of control at the same moment as its embattled protagonist. – Andrew Schenker, Village Voice, Sep 3, 2013

Bad Bad Bad

Don't waste 75 minutes of your time! Movie has no point at all. Very dull and non eventful.


This movie was awful, it seemed like a little more of a thriller but it was just about some crazy woman doing her student and becoming obsessed with him and acting like a freak. It was painful to watch and so slow and drawn out. LAME

Well worth a watch!

Fidell kills it with this great portrait of a woman on the edge. Creepy and sexy all at once.
