Likeluy divide critics and viewers, this is a simpler and less layered film than other works from Egoyan, who seems unable to infuse the pyschological thriller with his characteristic humor and irony.

It took awhile to sink in, but I liked Felicia's Journey very much.

Every time we think we know what's going to happen, the story spins off in a curious new direction...

[Egoyan's] still an arty hack in search of meaning.

A strange but compelling tale about trust, pain, and the miraculous power of healing.

Dramatically inert.

This movie sucked.

A deeply haunting film that only grows moreso upon reflection.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source:

What fails this otherwise competent and worthwhile production, is that everything falls too easily into psychological place by the film's end.

Turns into a sort of poetry, flowing gently from one scene to the next.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source:

It projects a coldly composed, alarming, yet singularly humorous quality that few thrillers even attempt.

Felicia's Journey is the work of a virtuoso.

Audience Reviews for Felicia's Journey

Ah yes. My good friend Atom Egoyan. He may ignore me in the streets but this was the period of time when he was coming up with some very rewarding films. No comment about the time before or time after. Where is Elaine Cassidy after this? She was great here as was Bob Hoskins playing counter to his usual role.
