Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Sluggish, stylized and frequently washed in a bilious green tint, The Missing Person is yet oddly irresistible, its omnipresent anxiety like a musical chord that neither rises nor falls. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Buschel makes striking use of the Mike Hammer/Philip Marlowe tradition to tell a story of disorientation and loss in a post-9/11 world where the Twin Towers can go missing too. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: A drab, pale-looking affair without a trace of visual style, this cross-country pursuit yarn fights a losing battle to sustain viewer attention via narrative alone, so much does it flounder for lack of imagistic flair. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: It's a great-looking movie, with an evocative use of music and, in rugged-yet-sensitive Michael Shannon, has an actor whose forceful, focused presence is the film's sturdy linchpin. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Brilliant Neo-Noir

Michael Shannon’s Best Film and Performance. Reminded me of Shoot The Piano Player. Watched after seeing the director’s other great noir, Glass Chin.
