Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Poorly scripted by Akiva Goldsman, this murder mystery (helmed by Bruce Beresford) represents an awkward synthesis of autism and family abuse as social problems, failing to deliver suspense or excitement on any level.
Rotten: Silent Fall, a dramatically repressed psychodrama, could be sued for creative malpractice.
Rotten: So predictable that you would almost swear you'd seen it before.
Rotten: It's the kind of picture that results when a film maker loses sight of the fact that a portion of his audience might actually think while watching a movie.
