Reviews


80
Variety - Peter Debruge
The movie’s more interesting for being less obvious.
75
TheWrap - Ben Croll
Bracketed by genre on both ends, the middle third of this 140-minute film becomes a gentle tale about a misfit finding in a platonic relationship a kind of second chance in life. In other words, it becomes a certain kind of Tom McCarthy film — and then gets back to the overarching story.
70
Los Angeles Times - Justin Chang
McCarthy pushes the thriller narrative in directions more extreme and harrowing than plausible, bringing Bill and Allison’s story to an unexpected point of reckoning.
67
IndieWire - David Ehrlich
A strained but strangely affecting turducken of a movie.
60
Screen Daily - Tim Grierson
There’s real feeling in this story — and a genuine desire to challenge audience expectations — which is laudable but only takes Stillwater so far.
