90
The New York Times - Jeannette Catsoulis
Ultimately his story draws more energy from class than from criminality: awash in sludgy browns and rotting greens - the colors of poverty and decomposition - this unpredictable oddity is a little bonkers but a lot original.
75
The A.V. Club - Scott Tobias
In easily her best performance - and sadly, one few will see, given the film's modest release strategy - Jessica Biel stars as a single mother in Cold Rock, Washington.
75
Slant Magazine - Unnamed
Illustrates the problem of class mobility with a dark, troubling premise that holds a harsh light up to our own assumptions and expectations.
40
Los Angeles Times - Unnamed
Long on atmosphere and short on sense, The Tall Man becomes less gripping as it grows more ridiculous.
38
New York Post - Kyle Smith
Spits out enough scares and twists to maintain our interest, but the film's psycho-sociological layer is almost as cheesy and unconvincing as its low-rent action scenes.
