Reviews


80
We Got This Covered - Lauren Humphries-Brooks
A well-acted, slow burning indie, The Fixer uses thriller mechanisms to examine insular, tribal cultures through the eyes of an outsider.
75
The Seattle Times - Soren Andersen
The performances are first rate, particularly Rains’ work in the lead role.
70
The Hollywood Reporter - John DeFore
Rains, who was given an acting award by the Tribeca jury, brings such a sense of purpose to the part that the movie never goes slack.
70
Variety - Dennis Harvey
While Olds and Paul Felten’s screenplay requires some significant credulity leaps, The Fixer is flavorsome, engaging and unpredictable enough that one can give those gaps a pass, at least to an extent.

The New York Times - Neil Genzlinger
Mr. Rains, Ms. Leo and Mr. Franco are all so interesting that you wish they had more to bite into. But the film has a transfixing quality nonetheless.
