Film Journal International

A pileup of stylistic audio and visual gimmicks and special effects, all in need of compelling characters and a story to hook us.
Forrest Hartman

Wants to be smarter than it is.

There is much promise here from the young director, Greg Harrison.

Maybe November wanted to be the missing link between more conventional art-house films and the hallucinogenic dreams of David Lynch. It fails.
Paul Doro
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
September 8, 2005
Director Greg Harrison attempts to compensate for a weak, undernourished screenplay with flashy visuals, including excessive rapid cutting and blurry shots that add nothing of value.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

For those who like these sorts of cinematic Sudoku puzzles, "November" is a good one.

Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle
September 4, 2005
It doesn't always succeed, and sometimes it has the egocentric obviousness of a particularly clever, grad-student thesis film, but at least Harrison is game enough to mess with your head in the first place.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City
September 2, 2005
A fuzzy and ultimately unrewarding psychological thriller.

Sean Means
Salt Lake Tribune
September 2, 2005
Like many dreams, November is long on imagery and short on sense.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Marc Mohan
Oregonian
August 26, 2005
A post-Memento, mess-with-your-head thriller that thinks it's much cleverer than it is.

It's interesting, and November does give us something to chew on. But a puzzle with no payoff isn't worth the effort.

It felt like (November) asked me to drive to a designated location, then kept re-drawing my map.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
August 26, 2005
A sort of 'Occurrence at Owl Creek Convenience Store' for moviegoers more familiar with Nine Inch Nails videos than Ambrose Bierce...
| Original Score: '2/4'
Steve Schneider
Orlando Weekly

Chalk it all up as useful filler for the downtime between David Lynch pictures.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press
August 25, 2005
November becomes a movie that makes us think and feel.

August 25, 2005
It's divided into three sections: Denial, Despair and Acceptance. They may as well be called Confoundment, Confusion and Apathy.

Artsy but unconvincing. November keeps viewers guessing, but not in a good way.

Abstract and obtuse...

The lack of proper resolution to the story is more vexing than intriguing.

Essentially a student film that happens to star some big-name actors.
