Critic Reviews for Head-On
Akin makes this a most intriguing, if roundabout, journey from despair to 'do something.'
The power of Akin's film, which is considerably aided by the two lead performances ... comes from the spectacle of people developing feelings for each other even through numbing layers of mutual narcissism, self-loathing and raging terror of intimacy.
A riveting love story that never flinches from the unsettling reality of a specific social issue or the universal joys that two people can bring to each other's lives, no matter how hard they try to bring agony to their own.
Audience Reviews for Head-On
Sordid but compelling tale of amour fou.
Some people choose the hardest way to live/change. "If you want to end your life, end it. You don't have to kill yourself to do that."
