House of D is a delightful coming of age drama/comedy that deals with weighty matters of the soul.

Duchovny displays a firm sense of time and place and genuine affection for all his characters, offering up plenty of amusing running gags and, most courageously, unabashed emotion.

Anton Yelchin is the real reason to see the film. The teenage actor has already shown a flair for underplaying to good effect on the Showtime series Huff.

In fact, it represents Duchovny as a capable writer and director with a promising career outside of the X-Files milieu.

Duchovny has crafted a small but not slight film about some impressive truths, filled with some wonderful characters and only slightly overbaked.

A film that takes a steadfastly gentle look at some of life's harshest moments while not overlooking its joys.

It's a warm, nostalgic mood piece that recaptures a time and place when people were friendlier and more human, things were more positive, movies were more creative and life was more fun.

This sly, often funny coming-of-age tale thwarts clichés of the genre by cloaking them in an aura that skirts the fantastical...

Off-putting drama of growing up male in the 1970s.

Nothing wrong with working out borderline incestuous fixation issues. But a film still has to be more than your very own shrink, and reach out to the audience and rise above psychodrama interplay more suited to the therapist couch.

While his script is good, even poetic at times, it certainly cannot be called an outstanding effort.

Not only does Robin Williams play a retarded man with fake teeth, but he also gets to wear old-age makeup. It's the schmaltz trifecta!

David Duchovny's first stab at writing and directing takes him to a place close to his heart - the New York of his youth.

Maybe not a "D," but this coming-of-age yarn from writer-director-actor David Duchovny certainly rates no better than a "C."

Were it not for the cast attached to this project, I doubt it would ever see the inside of a movie-house.

Duchovny cares dearly for these characters. ... Unfortunately, he's little more than a novice when it comes to keeping clichés out of the storytelling process.
