In the Cut Reviews

A puzzling affair of murky motivations and leaps of logic that no amount of Meg Ryan skin and no number of faked orgasms can hide.

... a curious mistake rather than a disaster

All of this is well done, and yet the movie is kind of a shambles. The key supporting characters are awkwardly used, as if the movie thinks it ought to have them but doesn't know why.

If your reason for seeing In the Cut is to watch America's sweetheart stripped bare, you'll get what you're looking for. On the other hand, if you're looking for a good movie, this one will disappoint.

Suffers from a fatal emotional and erotic imbalance.

Meg Ryan sheds more than her clothes in this would-be steamy thriller. She sheds her twinkle.

Weak plot with grisly middle; should've been NC-17.

Meg Ryan took her shirt off for this?

Showy adaptation of Susanna Moore's sexual thriller starring Meg Ryan is more erratic than erotic.

In The Cut falls short on execution, with Campion's unique and powerful vision undermined by the conventions of a traditional genre.

The movie builds slowly, slowly, slowly, towards a truly stupid climax

Like a long-lost relic from an earlier period best forgotten.

If there ever was an era when America wanted to see Meg Ryan naked -- and this is doubtful -- it surely ended 10 years ago.

As much as Meg Ryan wants to win an Academy Award, unfortunately, she doesn't make the cut.

Quickly deteriorates into a jumbled mess of naked limbs and muddled plot.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Elegantly shot but poorly assembled, Campion's fractured film [has] . . . a lot of vivid blood and guts, but no head and brains to control the flow of passion.

The murder investigation just doesn't work.

...is somewhat slight, insufferable and pseudo-sensationalistic in its presentation. This is a rough Cut for Campion to overcome.

"Ryan's actual performance is the strongest, most quirk-free work that she is doe in years."
