The Age (Australia)

Noni Hazelhurst and Steve Rodgers are very good, but there really is only so much moping one can stand.

Infidelity, unrequited love and eating disorders fill these griefstricken stories, which start well but never really take flight.

Despite game perfs from a well-known cast, weak scripting and sketchy character development leave too many holes to ultimately convince or compel.

A much more appropriate title for this snoozefest would be Slow & Pointless.

A sombre film, Bitter and Twisted is not Friday night entertainment, but rather a poignant look at grief and its ramifications.

Bitter & Twisted is a winning combination of glowing hope and battering despair.

A film fuelled by emotions, this impressive debut by Christopher Weeks canvasses the heartfelt, tender, angry, frustrated and confused feelings of a family reeling by the impact of loss.

Exceptional performances from the entire cast - and a giant one from Noni Hazlehurst - help make this a riveting film, as they conjure up real characters for us who act and feel in sometimes self-destructive ways %u2013 recognizably human, recognizably us

It's a miracle when an untracked English-language film arrives on the scene -- and a special joy when said movie is smashing.

It's a film that demands that you slow your own pulse rate and surrender to its melancholy rhythms. As with so many young Australian filmmakers, Weekes isn't interested in having his characters sparkle.
