Simon Killer Reviews

Black-veined and dark-hearted, this is another persuasive character study from Campos.

The quietly unsettling "Simon Killer" asks us to study its main character, a screwed-up enigma, who can't get out of the way of his own self-destructive tendencies.

The film is frequently masterful, suggesting the turbulent inner state of an American sociopath who believes himself to be a good guy.

A noirish character study of a young American in Paris, "Simon Killer" chillingly combines the classic amoral drifter out of James M. Cain with a very contemporary figure - the overemotional, overeducated, spineless slacker.

Though the film's ice-cold blend of the cerebral and the atavistic can be off-putting, it enables a queasy portrait of moral disengagement that lingers long after Simon has slipped from the screen.

Sort of "An American Psycho's European Vacation," this indie dramatic thriller mixes sex and violence and still winds up dull.

Simon Killer eschews easy answers and obvious characterisation and it's all the more impressive because of it.

A relentless and largely unrewarding descent into an ostensibly personal hell.

Alienation, anomie, angst, affectlessness, electropop - Antonio Campos' coolly undemonstrative second feature brings into gradual focus an American (sociopath) in Paris.

An aesthetically fussed-over, feel-bad character study-the ugly American narrative rejiggered for Generation Hipster.

If Simon Killer's tragic drift is predictable, the seedy particulars still engross.

The type of film that makes you ponder long and hard afterwards to appreciate what Antonio Campos was trying to achieve.

Bleakly enigmatic about the motives of its psychotic protagonist, "Simon Killer" gets cozy with one man's pathological rage.

Hollywood & Fine

Gripping and unsettling..There is a fly-on-the-wall quality to the scenes that's almost voyeuristic. It creates a sense of floating dread that builds as the film goes on.

The film has many elements of a thriller, but ultimately Antonio Campos's interest lies much more in profiling, yet never over-determining, his moody protagonist.

A sexy, seductive portrayal of one young man's downward spiral into existential Hell on the chilly Parisian streets.

A solid psychological thriller that could remind viewers of Ted Bundy, a cold, calculating psychopath who knew how to succeed with women.

Simon Killer is a film that demands to be taken seriously, and absorbed, rather than watched.

Simon Killer utilizes music better than any other movie I've seen at Sundance, loud and bombastic, half the time we hear sounds as filtered through Simon's iPod earbuds.
