Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A fictional drama that uses a Columbine-like high school massacre as a plot device had better have solid justification for engaging our grief and horror.
Rotten: It's too clever by half, too facile in its use of sensationalist headline material, too far-fetched in its psychological fancy.
Rotten: The Life Before Her Eyes might offer a fresh perspective on aborted dreams, but its insights are buried under stale, inflated moviemaking.
Rotten: The Life Before Her Eyes will draw you in, then intrigue you, then bore you, then bewilder you, then make you crazy with its incessant flashbacks and flash forwards, and finally leave you feeling like the victim of a fraud.
this movie is one that you can't forget about; it will leave you thinking about it for days. the dvd case has a really cheezy review but don;t be fooled. this movie is intense, haunting, delicate, and powerful. the acting is supreme.
This movie was amazing; really original and moving. They just didn't market it enough. One of the best movies of the year. A must-see.
