Heavenly Creatures Reviews

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

It remains, two decades on, a vertiginous, surreal psycho-portrait of adolescent girlhood's dramas and despairs--Little Town on the Prairie gone Badlands.

The first Peter Jackson film to show his interests go beyond simply splatter and gore. Magical.

Lynskey and Winslet are extraordinary actresses.

Rob Gonsalves

The inner tension of the film emerges from Jackson's enjoyment of the girls' bustling insanity and then his gradual withdrawal from it.

Combines original vision, a drop-dead command of the medium and a successful marriage between a dazzling, kinetic techno-show and a complex, credible portrait of the out-of-control relationship between the crime's two schoolgirl perpetrators.

Unlike the campy excess of Jackson's earlier Dead Alive, deliberate overkill ltimately points toward a dearth of ideas rather than a surfeit.

This incredible film may be director Peter Jackson's masterpiece.

Emanuel Levy

A dark, astounding film from Peter Jackson, showing his mastery of blending fact and fantasy. A deserved winner of Venice Festival's Silver Lion and Toronto Fest's Critics Award. Along with Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, this is 1994's most audacious film.

Fantasy and reality blur in a chilling film that shows Jackson's limitless potential

Acted with conviction, and directed and written with febrile vibrancy.

Peter Jackson creates a rich, haunting atmosphere, deftly juggling the eerily giddy fantasy world of the girls and their harsh, violent reality.

An odd, but mostly effective mix of melodrama, fantasy and voice-over.

Stylish and eerily compelling before it overplays its campy excesses, Heavenly Creatures does have a feverish intensity to recommend it.

Despite the undeniable merits of Jackson's other works, Heavenly Creatures strikes me as the best film he has made.
