Watching this film, one gets the sense of a once-arresting book that couldn't get arrested today.

nudity is perhaps the only intriguing element in this ponderous and torpid story about Joe (McGregor), a young drifter who takes work on a barge operated by a husband and wife (Peter Mullan and Tilda Swinton) after the mysterious death of his ex-girlfrien

... a sepia-toned dirge of a film, pointedly sluggish and crabbed

I was much impressed with this superbly performed and tightly scripted noirish period drama.

Where it's disturbing is in McGregor's challenging, defiant performance...

The story's drab, attention-span-testing pace makes it tough to keep wondering what dark secrets shuffle beneath the surface.

Kansas City Star

A humorless and dank display of ashcan angst that leaves you wishing theater restrooms had shower facilities.

Jam! Movies

A movie that delights in creating atmosphere at the expense of dialogue, and its effectiveness is testament to the genius of the performances.

Young Adam" is a study in contrasts. It's a movie full of explicit sex scenes and almost no passion, and it's a beautiful-looking film with a very ugly soul at its center.

Des Moines Register

An amoral and boring affair, beautifully filmed but empty at its core.

Eric D. Snider

The movie ladles out its atmosphere of quiet dread admirably, but atmosphere alone seldom makes a film watchable. This one is too sour in its attitude and vague in its ideas.

A bleak, static portrait of stilted, stunted lives.

Whether you're talking about Young Adam the movie or young Adam the character, neither is very likable.

Movie Boeuf

A brooding, smoldering study of sexual intensity grittily realized by McGregor, Swinton, and Mullan who slip, almost unnoticed, into these roles and make them their own.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

A rather sullen, somber, moody dramatic thriller that is insufferably dour, dark and depressing.

As potent as those [sex] scenes are, ... they add up to so very little, squandering their ferocity and the cast's talent.
