Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Canvas is a movie that rings emotionally true, despite structural contrivances and dim, washed-out color.
Fresh: Auds will experience the joy of discovery in Greco's fact-based drama -- not just in its perspective on schizophrenia and the effect of the disease on one Florida family, but in Joe Pantoliano's cliche-demolishing performance.
Rotten: Canvas just doesn't sketch a sufficiently vivid portrait.
Fresh: An unusually sensitive take on schizophrenia.
I loved this movie, it has a lot of heart. It's a wonderful story, a great cast and it all blends together perfectly. It's great to see Joey Pantoliano and Marcia Gay Harden together in this film, phenomenal! I look forward to Joseph Greco's next work of art.
