Leo Goldsmith
Not Coming to a Theater Near You

The horribly overused device of the handheld camera makes Keane not simply grating and heavy-handed, but also nauseating.

The film is much more realistic than entertaining.

Aside from Lewis's excellent acting, there's little reason to spend two hours with Keane.

takes a long, grueling ride around the block and never really manages to illuminate the human condition

[Keane] is unfortunately akin to a rat-in-the-maze science experiment.

There's more than a few spots where the improvisation [in Keane] spins out of control...

Just another in a long line of films that tries and fails to examine the issue, taking the easy road by remaining detached from its own proceedings.

Professionals in the mental health field may find this film interesting; the rest of us will probably find our attention wandering a bit, pondering how good Keane might have been.

Seattle Weekly

A psycho-underworld tour de force like Irreversible or The Machinist, impressive as far as it goes (not far), single-minded but without enough on its mind, a gimmick flick.

Tense and intense as Clean,Shaven, but not as compelling, Keane is an uncompromising but frustrating film, marred by slender narrative and elevated by cinema verite style

Lewis makes Keane's paranoia our paranoia. Kerrigan limits our world to his world. And that's how this grimly shot, roughly felt drama pulls us in.

Kerrigan's films create worlds of personal obsession.

As good as Lewis is -- and he's in every frame of this 93-minute movie -- it's Kerrigan's astounding gift for addressing the wounded that demands celebration.

Lewis, in an astonishingly elastic yet disciplined performance, invests Keane with a richly ambiguous, heartbreaking inner life that's only at peace when he manages to form a tenuous human connection.

We feel sympathy, fear and revulsion for Keane ... and it's to Lewis' credit that the subtle build of Keane minimalist plot adopts such weight and depth by the final scene.

Only Kerrigan's previous Clean, Shaven surpasses Keane as a sympathetic study of a man unravelled.

A movie that puts you so far into someone else's head you may have forgotten your own name by the time it's over.

Mr. Kerrigan both gives us a life at the edge of the abyss and pulls off an extremely deft narrative sleight of hand.

A surprise, and a highly effective film, much more accomplished and less punishing than Clean, Shaven.
