Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A very fine film, full of quietly impressive performances and young characters who register as authentic.
Fresh: Part teen romance, part awkward love triangle, part generational-clash portrait, and almost all powered by nostalgia ...
Rotten: "Ten Thousand Saints" pulsates with full-blooded supporting characters who create a tragic-absurd tapestry of decay and rebellion in the Ronald Reagan years, from depressed New England to volatile New York. It's too bad the center cannot hold.
Rotten: It doesn't have a genuine moment. But even period authenticity would not compensate for cardboard characters and a contrived narrative.
A temendous punk-driven, coming-of-age dramedy
Maybe it's my NYC nostalgia talking, but 10,000 Saints knocked it out of the park. A fantastic love letter to NYC back when it was filthy and dangerous, but still rich with energy and passion. The soundtrack is top notch, the performances spectacular (it actually may be my favorite Ethan Hawke performance yet) and the story just feels genuine. Highly recommended.
Love Ethan Hawke in this.
Very good story and top notch performances by all.Highly recommended/
