Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: If "The Good Doctor" isn't a bad movie, it tells only half the story.
Fresh: Daly deftly creates a disturbing, Chabrol-like tension that plays on immediate identification with the handsome medico's lonely, shy vulnerability and slow-building horror at the depths to which his self-delusion can sink.
Fresh: Targeting age-old English class consciousness, not contemporary American healthcare woes, the movie is a shrewd commentary on careerism and status.
Fresh: The film is anchored and greatly bolstered by Bloom, who delivers a performance of quietly escalating madness.
DOCTOR BLOOM IS IN!
Excellent thriller. Orlando is in the house. Will see again in the theater. There must be a sequel!
Made me think...
I usually never watch movies or go to the theater because I'm super afraid of wasting my time. The plots from today's movies tend to be silly and mind numbing. This wasn't the case for this movie. Maybe you won't be happy with the ending, but it makes you think about ethical issues in life. So yea, it's not a feel-good movie, but you will get plenty use out of it!
I am not sure why, but I really enjoyed this movie. It was easy to watch and the story was interesting to get caught up in the drama and emotions. This is not a complex film, it is simple and the story is pretty simple, but it is fun and worth watching!
