Reviews


80
The Guardian - Nigel M Smith
Falardeau draws exceptional character work from his cast.
80
The Hollywood Reporter - Deborah Young
Falardeau, who made his mark with the Oscar-nominated teacher-student tale Monsieur Lazhar, again brings real tenderness to his portrait of a man in trouble.
80
Screen International - Lee Marshall
The ‘I could have been a contender’ brand of sports movie gets a twist in this tasty, if minor-key, biopic.
75
The Film Stage - Rory O'Connor
The Bleeder isn’t attempting to reinvent any wheels, but it is consistently gripping — slick as a skip rope and just one hell of a story.
75
The Playlist - Jessica Kiang
Very well-made, very sweet-natured and very, very familiar: how strange that Philippe Falardeau‘s The Bleeder, a based-in-truth film about pretty much the definition of a confrontational sport —boxing— should feel cosy as a down comforter from beginning to end.
