But as time goes on, Finkel realizes how dangerous Longo really is.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The real story of Christian Longo and Michael Finkel might be a fascinating and disturbing tale of crime, curiosity and journalistic ethics, but that's not what this movie is. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Apr 16, 2015

Rotten: Unfortunately this "Story" never finds its footing as either a creepy morality play or a performance-driven two-hander. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Apr 16, 2015

Fresh: It's as good as any work I've seen in a film in 2015, and "True Story" is one of the better movies to come along this year. – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, Apr 18, 2015

Fresh: True Story digs deeper into the cultural fascination with killers and attempts a potent corrective along the way, reminding us who's been lost but also how justice isn't just another gripping procedural. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Apr 17, 2015

Highly Enjoyable

I went to see this movie one Friday afternoon when I had nothing to do, I knew nothing about it, I left pleasantly surprised. It was an excellent piece of work. I will warn you that the trailers make this seem much more of a thriller than it is. The move is much more of a character study than anything, so if your going into this movie thinking your going to get some high thrills, scary stalker scenes or silence of the lamb type of stuff, then don’t. If you want an excellent story about two men who form a strange bond and interaction based on one mans distorted view of reality and manipulations…. this movie is for you.

Amazing

Personally I loved this movie!! this is one of James Franco's best performance. The actors did an amazing job, the score was simply beautiful. I saw this 4 times in the theater and currently pre-ordered it!! It's a must see :)

FRANCO IS AN ARTIST!!!

James Franco is always fascinating to watch in his seemingly infinite genres of movies. See this movie for his performance which really shows the infancy of Hill's attempt to match this strange film. I have seen Franco become a force in the blockbuster films and he has opened the independent made films to audiences that will watch a lower budget film because he is in it. I'm overwhelmed with the constant flow of depressing films about unspeakable things that are tragically happening and have always been part of the human race lost. So I can't say that this movie is a new shocking story when the most shock you can find is on the local news; but I have to give Franco 5 stars for the excellent power he effortlessly brings to this and every role.
