Short of good, better than awful, it opens brilliantly, then just goes on, toward self-negating absurdity.

Minimalist acting is only interesting--and it can, of course, be intensely interesting--when it isn't providing a desperate cover for thematic inscrutability.

Field's leisurely buildup forestalls but doesn't prevent his movie's mutation into a granola Death Wish.

Not like some films, which can be slow and interesting, this baby is slow, boring, predictable and downright overrated!

As good as the performances are, much of the movie flounders.

Will this tedium ever end? Well, it does, for a while...

Takes a number of courageous risks but finally falls victim to emotional monotony.

Note to the filmmakers: if your goal was to get the audience to feel the characters' pain and suffering, congratulations. It worked.

It epitomizes what an American independent film can be when the director is willing to abandon the safety net.

Goes the distance to avoid banalizing the dilemma of a reasonable couple unhinged by unreasonable events.

Spacek and Wilkinson deliver profound performances that seethe with such gentle rage and despair that they're almost too raw to watch.

For anyone who wondered where the real people in American movies went to, In the Bedroom is a tonic.

Spacek and Wilkinson are dazzling, utterly convincing. You might as well be watching a documentary, for as real as the Fowlers seem.

Field's fine direction gives the dimensions of a waking nightmare to what might have been an overwrought melodrama.

Lingers in the mind, suffusing melancholy with the fateful pall of dread that hangs over all of life's pleasures.

Sissy Spacek and Tom Wilkinson turn in the best performances of the year so far as parents whose lives unravel when their only child dies.
