Critic Reviews for Orphans
My guess is that Mullan never decided what tone his film should aim for; he fell in love with individual sequences without asking how they fit together.
Writer-director Peter Mullan never seems clued in as to how hilariously atrocious Orphans is.
Arguably one of the funnier and more heartfelt of the [crime movie] genre to come along of late.
