About the Movie

Ned Rifle is the third and final chapter of Hal Hartley's tragicomic epic which began with Henry Fool (1998) and continued with Fay Grim (2007). At once a saga concerning the Grim family of Woodside, Queens, and how their lives are turned upside down by the arrival of the self-proclaimed genius, Henry Fool, the trilogy is also an illustration of America's grappling with ideas, art, politics, and religion over the course of twenty years. In this swiftly paced and expansive conclusion, Henry and Fay's son, Ned, sets out to find and kill his father for destroying his mother's life. But his aims are frustrated by the troublesome, sexy, and hilarious Susan, whose connection to Henry predates even his arrival in the lives of the Grim family. A funny, sad, and sexy adventure, Ned Rifle is an intellectually stimulating and compassionate satire.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If the new film looks and sounds much cheaper than Mr. Hartley's earlier work, the writer and director's wit remains intact. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Mar 31, 2015

Fresh: There's relief in the fact that while Ned Rifle is no Fool, it's still the writer-helmer's best work since then. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Mar 30, 2015

Fresh: [It] might not sound entertaining, yet when the writer-director is on his game, as he is in "Ned Rifle," the effect is bizarre black comedy that is designed to set you thinking about what his satire is really saying. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Apr 2, 2015

Rotten: The movie doesn't exactly go anywhere. Or rather, it dithers around, and then, just as things start to get interesting, it ends. – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture, Apr 5, 2015

Good Movie, Terrible Ending

The movie was good, but the ending was cliche’ and predictable. Unfortunate.
