Urban Cinefile

It defies categorisation, which I love, and defies logic, which is very European. But it's also clever, funny and compelling

Cinema Sight

An interesting, if high minded, concept film that is nothing without its performers.

The sort of movie that would probably appeal to Ryan Reynolds' detractors . . .

August may be peddling some absurd New age "secret", but at least it allows him the benefit of stronger and more coherent storytelling.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

Em sua estréia como diretor de longas, August faz jus à inteligência de seu roteiro intrincado, criando uma história tensa e instigante que surpreende tanto como ficção quanto como reflexão metafísica/religiosa. Além disso, o elenco revela-se fortíssimo.

When I read that Ryan Reynolds was playing not one, but three characters in this movie -- one of whom is gay -- my ticket pretty much bought itself. They had me at 'himbo'.

Overall, I responded to The Nines as a sly Cronenbergian chess game of the mind. As impenetrable as it becomes, it's easy to perceive that this is straight-from-the-heart work from August.

This is London

Let's avoid such extremes, and note merely that he's made a film that's funny ha-ha as well as funny peculiar; an exercise in navel-gazing that tickles all the senses.

Definitely worth a look.

Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph

There are plenty of surprises in this amusing Donnie Darko-ish metaphysical thriller, but watching Van Wilder and Blade: Trinity star Ryan Reynolds flex some previously hidden acting chops is the main one.

It is pretty familiar material in some ways, and not exactly unpretentious, but very watchable.

Times [UK]

The film puts a delightful spin on that profound and solipsistic idea that we are the godlike inventors, and moral arbitrators, of our own little worlds. A gem.

Daily Mirror [UK]

An amusing journey through the nature of reality with a bit of Hinduism thrown in that sadly collapses into new-age nonsense towards the end.

November 30, 2007

Overly gimmicky and ultimately frustrating it may be, but at its best The Nines feels like a triple-bill of 'Twilight Zone' episodes written by Charlie Kaufman - creepy, oddball and clever.

Sometimes a product's creative integrity requires that it not quite attain a ten - but when it comes to the cinema of big ideas, The Nines is as close to divine perfection as you are likely to get.

BBC.com

With McCarthy and Davis also playing two further roles with suspiciously identical initials, The Nines toys with issues of identity, duality and alternate reality certain to appeal to anyone who's experimented with the virtual avatars of Second Life.

Absorbing, mind-bending and thoroughly engaging mystery thriller with a superb script and terrific performances from its three leads.

Empire Magazine

An intriguing post-modern take on TV, film and gaming culture, with a revelatory performance from the former Van Wilder.

Shadows on the Wall

With an almost Donnie Darko sense of apocalyptic mystery, writer-director August really gets our heads spinning.

The Nines is a movie that aims to raise more questions than it answers.
