Well made but hopelessly dull...

Reel Film Reviews

From the start, none of the characters you are presented with have likable qualities, so it's extremely hard to care when any fail, or don't get what they want

Full Review… | July 2, 2009

Laced with a lush, foreboding sense of noirish upscale LA surroundings, but excessively detailed too much information hot sex on the menu and little psychological insight going on above character collarbones.

A complex, difficult, intriguing film that digs deeper than outward appearances.

Audience Reviews for The Human Contract


Good first time directional outing from the Smith family with this one. Paz Vega tries a little too hard to be Penelope Cruise....The story is a little odd and on the eve of winning a five billion dollar contract the leading ad man of the firm (Clarke) goes mental and ruins it all. You just wouldnt...
