Disappointingly resorts to a reductive dissection of its protagonist in the third reel, but The Grief Tourist benefits from Michael Cudlitz's suitably creepy performance, and is an atmospheric, suspenseful ride.

Griffith can break your heart as a good woman staggering under the weight of life, especially after her character places her last bit of faith in a dangerously damaged man.

a deadly serious psychodrama with the emphasis on (finely acted) character, where even the odd transgressive twist serves and illuminates the story's integrity rather than just adding another cheap thrill.

Michael Cudlitz's first leading role is the sole selling point of this repellent character study.

Griffith's vulnerable performance is a standout. But the film's final third seems needlessly graphic.

"Dark Tourist" takes an effectively unpleasant trip down the lost highway of a morbid mind before its bad choices start catching up with it.

Degenerate, depraved psycho-sexual drama revolving around a pathetic thrill-seeker who travels with intent to visit places of tragedy or disaster.

"Dark Tourist" gets bogged down in insufferably slow-moving scenes - interestingly, when Jim is interacting with others, despite consummate performances from Cudlitz and Griffith.
