As I Lay Dying
If a movie could have facial features, 'Disconnect' would wear a furrowed brow and earnest, worried eyes.
| Original Score: 2/4
A dark but powerful cautionary tale that benefits from strong performances from a talented cast.
| Original Score: 3/5
It doesn't all work -- and it sometimes feels like a much smarter take on Paul Haggis' Crash -- but enough of it works to make it a worthwhile film.
| Original Score: 4/5
There's no way to see this film and not be concerned each time an electronic device is used. That kind of visceral reaction is what makes the film so disturbingly brilliant.
| Original Score: A
By constantly weaving these tales together, Rubin takes humanity out of the equation, almost as if all these human intersections were engineered by technology, not an increasingly interrelated world.
This movie doesn't need a reviewer, it needs a family mediator.
Come on, guys: There's nothing cinematic about Googling.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
"Disconnect" would have been wiser to focus more on the everyday ways technology alienates us from each other, rather than descend to this sort of fear-mongering melodrama.
| Original Score: C
There are no revelations or surprises, just newspaper editorial-style lamentations disguised as cautionary tales. I'd rather watch racism push Sandra Bullock down the stairs in Crash.
| Original Score: C-
Sensitive performances from the entire cast are absorbing, especially Jason Bateman in his first full-on dramatic role.
| Original Score: B
A dramatic triptych of loosely connected stories that mostly avoids the pitfalls of an easy target with solid work from all involved.
| Original Score: 7.9/10
Handsomely shot and judiciously edited, the film benefits from a superlative cast ...
| Original Score: 2.5/4
It's left to the actors to make up for the gaffes, and they're definitely up to the task.
| Original Score: 3/4
Even in the heightened awareness of a post- age (and its ), Disconnect is naturally gripping.
Journalists lie, spouses stray and thieves steal, but "Disconnect" keeps trying, unsuccessfully, to pin the blame on technology rather than its users.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
I preferred "Disconnect" 10 years ago when it was called "Crash."
As cautionary tales go, "Disconnect" is a pretty good one, but it's not really a whole lot more than that.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
In the sobering drama Disconnect, technology is one of the culprits that separate people from each other - but not the only one.
It thinks it's smarter than it is.
| Original Score: 1/4
A penetrating examination of who we are as a people and culture living in the advanced electronic age of the here and nowa place as potentially dangerous and harmful as it is radically convenient.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
