Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The gimmicky filming technique backfires.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Unfortunately, the movie lacks narrative balance -- not in terms of screen time but in terms of raw audience interest.

Perhaps Uncertainty is a metaphor for the writing process. You start with a blank page then you have to make a decision, any decision, and follow it as far as you can.

Rain Li's crisp cinematography gives the entwined stories different but complementary visual styles. Paul Zucker's editing supports each genre then poses fresh questions by leaping from one to the other.

Uncertainty is a long gimmick stylishly filmed and moderately enjoyable but plagued by tedious stretches and constant reminders of its own artificiality.

Some viewers may find fault with the basic idea, but Uncertainty is undeniably fascinating.

The film bets everything on an unconventional structure, but fails to do much with it.

Through a purely movie-world concept, the film arrives at some surprisingly real, vivid feelings.

A satisfying romantic drama with two alternate stories and a remarkably fresh and vibrant performance by Lynn Collins.

A brilliantly-conceived, well-executed, micro-budgeted, action-packed thriller which gives a whole new meaning to 4th of July fireworks.

Has an interesting concept along with a terrific cast, stylish cinematography and interesting use of symbolism, but it's often rather bland and too low on imagination, credibility and wit.

Excellent New York City location shooting and the ever-reliable Joseph Gordon-Levitt can't salvage this gimmicky, overlong thriller from Scott McGehee and David Siegel...

The leads are immensely appealing, but the sum of their experiences equals nothing more profound than two earnest people wrestling with a tough decision.

A young couple between a rock and a hard place must choose whether to go to a family dinner or run from gangsters, but only the latter choice is intereting.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lynn Collins are so interesting that it's easy to put up with the decision-making dithering that goes along with the title.
