Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Unspools like a Francoise Sagan novel: purposefully, enigmatically and with a raw emotional purity that makes its volatile central couple appear even more defenseless than they really are. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Apr 25, 2013

Fresh: This unconventional, unsettling couple-on-the-run tale works best as an exercise in ambiguous atmosphere. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Apr 22, 2013

Fresh: Although the film may not always be as aesthetically involving as better-budgeted productions, the performances are really the point, so by keeping focused on her actors Seimetz succeeds in making it all work. – Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter, Apr 22, 2013

Fresh: Captures the wildly flailing energy and exhausted torpor of grinding frustration as well as the flickering grace of stifled dreams. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Sep 10, 2012

Customer Reviews

Great, great film.

Got to see this a while back thanks to a festival run and it was incredible. Moody, atmospheric, haunting in all the right ways with a great cast and some beautiful Florida scenery.

Where the sun don't shine

Based on buzz, I checked this out thinking it would be a unique horror experience, but honestly, it's not much of a story. "SDS" shows promise that the director Amy Seimetz could make a better film than this one actually is. The Florida atmosphere is ever present and I appreciate the amount of work that went into the editing and sound editing but it's mostly artifice pasted over a less than enthralling coverup of a crime so a guy can be with a girl. The final half hour becomes Blanche Dubois-laughable when it's not supposed to be, and rather predictable.

A better version of this kind of femme-horror film would be "Green", by another up-and-coming actress/director, Sophia Takal who co-starred with Kate Lyn Sheil in V/H/S. People would be better off seeing that film, complete in its own right.

Sun Don't Shine

The acting is what makes this film. The actress who portrays Crystal does a masterful job of bringing to life a disturbed, unlikable, manipulative character. The actor who plays her boyfriend does a believable job as the desperate, manipulated pawn in Crystal's game.
