Critic Reviews for The Door
Visually, there's an elegance to "The Door" that feels both a virtue and a limitation.
Only cinemagoers who've enjoyed the cringe-worthy cine-sadism of watching train wrecks like Tommy Wiseau's The Room and Plan 9 from Outer Space could and should embrace this turd.
Without make up or any adornments, the haggard Helen Mirren cooks, cleans and growls her way through this intimate, well-handled two-hander opposite the equally able Martina Gedeck.
An absorbing and complex character drama, but one that's difficult to connect to at times.
There's something quite haunting about the relationship between the two women: in some surprising ways, this is a determinedly unsentimental work.
Seems like a creative miscalculation by all concerned. The dialogue is clumsy in translation, the great director István Szabó seems to have lost his subtlety and his eye for performance
The film has a formality and stilted quality about it that is distancing
