Critic Reviews for 2 Days in the Valley
To the director's credit, the actors all seem responsive to his touch, giving performances that are lively and flavorsome, if not deep or unlike anything each of them has done before.
Herzfeld has a tolerable eye for filling a 'Scope frame but a tin ear when it comes to creating dialogue; these are all characters we've met before, and most even seem bored with themselves.
Smoothly constructed, for such a busy piece of work, and Hatcher's ascent to stardom continues.
A sleek, amusingly nasty screen debut by a film maker whose television credits include an Amy Fisher docudrama.
Funny, pathetic, sad, absurdist -- writer-director John Herzfeld plays it any number of ways, and makes them all work.
Audience Reviews for 2 Days in the Valley
AA great movie. Somehow I have run into a string of movies lately where the lives of about 6 people all intertwine with each other during the movie. This one is the best of all. Danny Aiello plays an excellent part, along with Paul Mazursky. What we have is a divorced couple, and the wife pays to have her husband killed, which sets of a sequence of events that not only are comical but also suspenseful at times. The Sound Track helps make this a 5 star movie. get it anyway you can, its excellent. 5 STARS
this movies kicks ass on many levels
Extremely underrated Tarantino- esque ensemble film from writer/Director John Herzfeld. It's quirky characters, bursts of blood, and sly humor make this (unfairly dubbed!) "Pulp Fiction Clone" definately worth checking out.
