Deadspin

In a brisk 104 minutes, we meet four compelling people, establish a living breathing school environment, tackle legitimate moral dilemmas and wrestle with topics we'll spend longer than 104 minutes discussing.

Doubt works best when the performers are simply allowed to spar.

Streep bursts onto the scene in a shower of meteors and takes control of director John Patrick Shanley's scenario.

You don't mess with two Capital-A actors when they decide to play the game of Who Can Yell The Loudest.

As a movie, very little actually happens. It's a lot of discussion about what might have happened or may occur in future, and then the emotional change that signals the curtain to drop and for the class to put down their pencils. The performances are st

Shanley's continuous straining for that Great Unknown is undercut by tidy characters and cinematic deficiencies

It might be a bit of a slow starter, and it definitely takes its time allowing the story to unravel slowly. However, it's definitely worth a look, and a bit of discussion.

The early scenes of Doubt glide past so smoothly that it's easy to miss the seditious currents underneath.

The acting talent in evidence here is astounding and nobody, absolutely nobody puts her or his performance ahead of everyone else.

A cat-and-mouse game of power and posture, played out by two of the finest actors of the moment.

The cast['s]... collective efforts go a long way to mitigating Shanley's pedestrian grasp of film language.

A well acted exploration of desperation, the destructiveness of conviction and the persuasiveness of doubt.

Brilliant performances from Streep and Hoffman, however, make it well worth seeing.

Doubt is a provocative, pared-down work that in the theatre carried the subtitle "A Parable", and it has four outstanding performances.

The moral grey area of the title perhaps worked better in the stage play; exposed on screen it's not "doubt" being expressed, it's the sound of Streep's headmistressy voice demanding, "That Oscar - on my desk, NOW."

A clutch of fine performances helps to silence any reservations you might have about the screen version of Doubt.
