Swinton approaches Julia with an all-or-nothing attitude, creating an ungodly eccentric character and evoking an impressive array of audience emotions.

Tilda Swinton's strong central performance saves an otherwise routine drug drama.

It's simply impossible to imagine Eric Zonca's Julia, a noirish thriller and sharp character study inspired by Cassavetes' Gloria, without Tilda Swinton, who dominates the film from start to finish.

Boston Phoenix

In Erick Zonca's tense and juicy noir, Tilda Swinton plays the title role with a crusty panache matched only by her matted, flaming-red thatch of hair (a character in its own right).

If you're feeling adventurous, seek it out. Swinton's masterful performance as the flailing, desperate L.A. alcoholic Julia will more than reward your time.

Tilda Swinton is electrifying in this riveting, knock-your-socks-off crime thriller that is just about as intense as movies get.

Charles Bukowski would have loved this foul-mouthed, fiery, reckless woman. Against all odds and common sense, you will, too.

The plot is over-the-top, but Swinton makes you stay with the film long after the writer/director loses credibility.

I salute the film's bravery for rushing off at full force on its own stream-of-consciousness logic, but for me, I found the final stages perhaps a tad too far-fetched.

I recommend going to see it, but don't blame me when you feel like you've downed a fifth of vodka afterwards.

In a sense, it goes to all the places a sensitive character study might have gone, but more dramatically, convincingly and vividly.

A nerve-wracking thriller with a twisty plot and startling realism.

Swinton is mesmerising as a messed-up drunk.

a tonally-consistent, lively thriller that is very much of the filmmaker's own little corner of the world

This is not really sure what it wants to be, an out-an-out thriller or a character portrait, but it exels at both in parts.

Julia is a mix of fantasy and tragedy, with the violence amped up and the background noisy and lurid.

Zonca's Julia is a difficult movie to stomach, but entirely worth the emotional unrest it puts through you.

Like any beautiful, heartbreaking wreck -- we can never take our eyes off Julia. Or the fierce and uncompromising actress bringing her to awful, astonishing life.
