slick, funny and unsettling, slipping between psychological thriller, absurdist farce and ghost story into an unnerving dreamscape where psychosis meets metempsychosis.

If Lemming doesn't necessarily work on an intellectual level, it sure does emotionally.

A cross between a psychological and supernatural thriller, the film is intriguing, baffling and often confusing

If you're content to let dream logic take over, a lot can be gleaned from this odd, darkly funny meditation on life, death, love and revenge.

Dominik Moll's masterfully cast psychological thriller Lemming crackles with tension; its story keeps going off to unexpected places as we watch breathlessly, unable to look away.

...an intriguing head game from a talented director who needs to solidify his ideas with a bit more substance before he can become truly great. The cast clicks and collides in all its configurations

Unlike Hitchcock, whose plots were models of clean lines and logical avenues, Moll is more interested in subverting everything familiar, and in leaving stones unturned.

A transparently formal film that plays along the narrative boundary between the psychological and the supernatural.

The movie, which has the slightly glum perversity of early Chabrol, is a dream of betrayal.

The actors are more than equal to their eccentric roles, and the film is well worth seeing as a tantalizingly cerebral and unpredictable thriller.

Quietly eerie, hauntingly enigmatic psychological thriller...distinguished by Moll's cool, deliberate, almost antiseptic approach to what's actually rather pulpish material.

When Alice keeps showing up in unexpected places, you don't need music to feel the tension she creates. In the battle of the Charlotte's for uber-spooky, Ms. Rampling wins hands down.

The narrative surrealism can be annoying, but it's never less than riveting, and the acting is superb.

Moll is exquisitely attuned to the way sound rubs up against silence, dark against light, and his shading of psychology into the supernatural is deliciously mischievous.

Creepy, surreal, and shocking, Lemming is a welcome antidote to the by-the-numbers summer fare clogging up our theaters.

Perhaps a tad too long, Lemming is nevertheless nightmarish entertainment.

Imagine a movie that combines the suspense of Hitchcock with the inscrutable sexuality of David Lynch's films and you're looking at French director Dominik Moll's Lemming.
