Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Lee daringly chooses to keep his story's motivational mysteries unexplained, leaving this richly observed film open to the viewer's assessments. Yet the sense of imbalance is ever-present and strong.
Fresh: The best film about family so far this year. Just don't think Disney.
Fresh: A well-observed and deftly performed examination of upper-middle-class emotional deep freeze...
Rotten: It's unfortunate that as capable a team as director Lee and screenwriter-producer Schamus should have become fascinated with such unpromising material.
The film gets under you skin and stays there for day's. Ang Lee is one hell of a filmmaker, I highly suggest this one if you missed it because a lot of you did.
this is by far one of the best movies ever made. and after more than 6 years, the very last, almost speachless scene remains engraved in my memory... i'm in awe of this movie, and i always will be. and i hope you will too.
A contemporary drama. A slow contemporary drama with marital dischord. Why did Criterion pick this one up...
