Stone Reviews

Page 1 of 5

Stone is a flawed film, largely because Lucetta is a B-movie seductress preying on believable human beings with backgrounds and complicated hearts.

Sarah Sluis
Film Journal International

A prisoner and parole officer grapple with sins and the need for redemption in this subtle drama of parallel lives.

It's got something to say. What that something is, though -- besides a four character study in spiritual decay -- is sort of up to you.

What Culture

Stone is an unusual film which shifts uneasily between sleaze and philosophy, but it's distinguished at all times by three luminous performances.

Great performances from the cast in this engrossing drama.

The Standard

Stone ultimately feels more confounding rather than profound, (but) it will have you thinking after its credits have rolled.

Spirituality and Practice

An engrossing drama about the difficulty people have believing in forgiveness or in turning one's life around.

Shadows on the Wall

Dark and disturbing, this drama holds our interest due to the strong acting and provocative issues swirling around in the story. But it's a little heavy-handed in its desire to convey something important.

Robert Roten
Laramie Movie Scope

This film has the kind of suspense where you know something bad is going to happen, but instead of just getting it over with, the film drags it out way too long.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Seems as weary as the Detroit parole caseworker Robert De Niro plays.

Charlotte Observer

When did Robert De Niro stop trying? When did he start coasting on his well-deserved reputation, either mocking it in crass comedies or sleepwalking through dramas where fans filled in the missing emotions for him?

Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Set up as a familiar noir plot, the film veers off into unexpected places, keeping the audience guessing as to the main characters' motivations well after the credits roll.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Like a celluloid 'American Gothic,''Stone' does not paint a pretty picture.

Creative Loafing

There's an obvious difference between elegant underplaying and merely going through the motions, and while, say, Michael Caine still excels at the former, De Niro has sadly become a master of the latter.

Cleveland Plain Dealer

Stone is a movie about fragile souls. About how fragile we all are.

Bill Gibron
PopMatters

With its excess of blatant symbolism and illogical character turns, what could have been a halfway decent exploration of personal ethics turns into a half-assed excuse for entertainment.

Sean O'Connell

Watching these three actors burrow like ticks into the underbelly of John Curran's murky moral drama should be enough of a reason to recommend Stone, and it almost is.

Tampa Bay Times

If only one character in Stone reacted as someone in his position would to the preposterous situation at hand, the movie would be 15 minutes long.
