Again, Nunez proves himself a master of understatement, presenting another poignant, slice-of-life drama peopled with vulnerable, fully fleshed-out characters caught-up in a complex situation.

It's flawed but no less fascinating for its mood of simmering tension on the fringes of the American dream.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

There's so much simmering behind the characters that the film seems to get away from Nunez, which is fine. The messy emotions and illogic of human nature defines this drama.

The talent is still there, the film better than most. It just needs less crime, more love.

Keeps you entertained throughout its two hours, which says a lot about Nunez's storytelling.

Proves that while Ulee's Gold was an exceptional movie, it wasn't a fluke. Nuņez just needs to search past the Panhandle for fresh material.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Longtime independent writer-director Victor Nunez brings a rare combination of homegrown regional sensibility and genuine filmmaking skills to his low-key stories of small-town life on Florida's gulf coast.

Nunez's multidimensional character development, with fine performances by Olyphant, Brolin, Wynter and Angela Bettis as one of Sonny's old flames, lends weight to the schematic plot points.

It's a heartfelt movie that could have used a zigzaggier undercurrent, though Olyphant, in the sort of role that Paul Newman used to swagger through, has a star's easy command.

Integral to the plot of Coastlines is its setting -- indeed articulated in the very title.

Along with a terrific cast, [director] Nunez keeps the action driving forward: dangerous, sexy, and conflicted.

Emanuel Levy
EmanuelLevy.Com

By Nunez's high standards, Coastlines is conventional and outdated, a problematic hybrid of a generic crime melodrama and a more personal tale of a flawed hero who has fallen from grace and needs to restore his inner self (Nunez's specialty).

The third entry lacks the subtle power of the previous two efforts.

A skeeter noir bogged down in the unconvincing pulp of a melodrama without conviction.

Los Angeles CityBeat

Despite good performances, this attempt to intertwine a crime thriller with a love triangle never gels...Fans of Ulee's Gold, Ruby in Paradise, and A Flash of Green are likely to feel disappointed by this decidedly lesser effort.

The stuff of pulp, seriously at odds with what the writer-director has always done best. That is, show the inner workings of people, their needs, their fears, their small dreams.

Nunez's fans will appreciate his ability to evoke a palpable atmosphere. But there's just not enough spark in his scorched setting.
