A gripping, searing portrait of a lost soul trying to find her way through life.
| Original Score: 4/5
[Bennett's] quite convincing as she tries to figure out what has gone wrong in her personal life -- and how she can fix it before it is too late.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Some Body often looks like an episode of the TV show Blind Date, only less technically proficient and without the pop-up comments.
Bennett's naturalistic performance speaks volumes more truth than any 'reality' show, and anybody contemplating their own drastic life changes should watch Some Body first.
| Original Score: 3/4
To be influenced chiefly by humanity's greatest shame, reality shows -- reality shows for God's sake! -- is a crime that should be punishable by chainsaw.
| Original Score: 0/4
Some Body smacks of exhibitionism more than it does cathartic truth telling.
| Original Score: 1/4
It's so tedious that it makes you forgive every fake, dishonest, entertaining and, ultimately, more perceptive moment in Bridget Jones's Diary.
| Original Score: 2/4
Just because it really happened to you, honey, doesn't mean that it's interesting to anyone else.
Exists then as an occasionally insightful acting exercise.
| Original Score: 2/5
As vulgar as it is banal.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
In the end there is one word that best describes this film: honest.
| Original Score: B+
You might not want to hang out with Samantha, but you'll probably see a bit of yourself in her unfinished story.
| Original Score: B-
Some Body will take you places you haven't been, and also places you have.
Not much to get excited about here.
| Original Score: C-
Ms. Bennett is worth watching, and her story is weirdly detailed enough to prove once more that truth is too strange for good fiction.
An unremittingly ugly movie to look at, listen to, and think about, it is quite possibly the sturdiest example yet of why the DV revolution has cheapened the artistry of making a film.
| Original Score: F
A painfully funny ode to bad behavior.
Winds up being both revelatory and narcissistic, achieving some honest insight into relationships that most high-concept films candy-coat with pat storylines, precious circumstances and beautiful stars.
| Original Score: 3/5
An amateurish, quasi-improvised acting exercise shot on ugly digital video.
| Original Score: 1/4
Some Body is a shaky, uncertain film that nevertheless touches a few raw nerves.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
