The Eclipse Reviews

When the ghost story moments are in the forefront, it manages a strong and creepy sense of foreboding. I just wished that would have been the focus from beginning to end.

The Eclipse is wholly, if strangely, cinematic; its dream-like tonal and narrative unpredictability, interspersed with a few completely jarring horror-film moments, make for an experience that will, yes, haunt audiences for a long time to come.

Quiet, subtle and tocuhing, this drama of a widower is extremely well acted by Hinds and Aidan Quinn

No, this is not The Eclipse where Monica Vitti and Alain Delon fail to rendezvous on Antonioni's empty street corner.

The whole thing would probably have flown apart if not for Hinds, whose character, like a dark star imploding, pulls everything toward him.

The story is thin, but it has a kind of easy Irish charm.

A solid and occasionally genuinely freaky little effort.

The way McPherson handles the relationships in the movie is remarkable, in that he doesn't fall prey to a playwright's natural tendency to try put everything into the text.

Blends romance, drama and supernatural horror into a truly original, thoroughly unforgettable concoction.

Quinn, alternately charming and loathsome, is brilliant, as is Hinds, an actor who has elevated everything he's been in.

Being haunted by one's past really means something from director Conor McPherson

McPherson brews a strangely appealing composite, a movie that is mostly character-driven romance but that seasons the proceedings with timely scare-your-pants-off moments of horror.

No, this is a wonderfully nuanced tale of love and loss set in a picturesque Irish coastal town during its annual literary festival.

The high caliber acting is wasted on the bland and dull story. Despite an 88-minute running time, the movie is excruciatingly slow and grows tiresome as nothing much happens. It maintains a melancholy mood with the characters contemplating deep thoughts r

an enjoyable minor-key Irish romance enlivened by excellent performances - including a wonderfully observed turn by Aidan Quinn as an insufferably boorish American typer of best-sellers - but marred by the occasional intrusion of a bad horror movie

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

For the most part, this love triangle plays out with great warmth and delicacy.While Quinn seems to be having a ball playing against type as the boozy Nicholas, Hinds and Hjelje create fully-rounded, sympathetic characters.

The haunted quality of Eclipse is a holdover from McPherson's plays, as is the abundance of dark, piercing wit.
