The pace of Young Adam is slower than the barge upon which most of the action takes place.

Asks you to question a lot of things about society's willingness to judge, but fails in offering any intelligent arguments of its own.

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

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.

Mackenzie gamely attempts to translate Trocchi's acid-etched vision, but he lacks the writer's corrosiveness.

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

Even with all that humping going on, Young Adam is a snooze.

Cinema em Cena

Um filme frio que encontra sérias dificuldades em estabelecer conexão com o espectador - e, ao final da projeção, temos uma certa sensação de 'E daí?'.

A film of dark, disenchanting characters who tread water in moral ambiguity for 98 minutes.

Young Adam presents itself as tragedy... but [its] fantasies of artistic rebellion and individualism have rotted into simple, solipsistic selfishness.

The narrative scheme, the brooding period atmosphere, the understated score and the precision of the acting also make the story seem more interesting than it is.

The adultery and murder that follow when McGregor signs on to work for Swinton and her husband (Peter Mullan), on a barge navigating the waterways of Glasgow, elicit only stifled yawns.

Young Adam unfolds with an absolute minimum of dramatic highs and lows, and it's so disaffected that it prompts laughter at the wrong moments.

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