... 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...

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.

A bleak, static portrait of stilted, stunted lives.

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.

Naked bodies and raw emotions rub against each other with equally sad results...

The narrative, with its provocative flashbacks, is just interesting enough to propel the movie forward.

Joe's drifting is less a matter of destiny, just desserts, or even will, than it is random, a series of accidents that might just as easily have gone another way.
