Reviews


100
Variety - Owen Gleiberman
In Vengeance, B.J. Novak proves a born storyteller with the rare gift of using a film to say something that intoxicates us.
83
IndieWire - David Ehrlich
Even when the jokes miss the mark or the central mystery seems too easily solved, Vengeance is sustained by the question of what its characters mean to each other; a question asked sweetly but shrouded by an ever-growing darkness that allows the film to wander into dangerous territory by the end.
75
The Playlist - Jason Bailey
Some of Novak’s camera sense, particularly early on, betrays his sitcom roots, and he commits the classic rookie mistake of going on three or so scenes too long, tying up inconsequential loose ends. But he crafts a good mystery, consistently engaging and entertaining, and the thoughtful turns of the last confrontation are sly, smart, and knowing.
75
The Film Stage - John Fink
Vengeance is a refreshing, self-aware take on a man who sets out to define a societal problem and is met with evolving redefinition.
75
Boston Globe - Unnamed
In “Vengeance,” Novak proves his chops both as an adept filmmaker and skillful satirist of contemporary mores.
