Critic Reviews for Jailbait

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

Disturbing and affecting.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Top Critic

Claustrophobic and overwrought, Jailbait is an unpleasant excursion into gay panic mitigated somewhat by performances that are hard to shake.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Top Critic

While the stars deliver highly committed performances, the static nature of the proceedings ultimately defeats them.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

A stagy, only mildly compelling prison drama that ends up feeling like purgatory to all involved.

Top Critic

I wouldn't have thought it was possible to make a prison picture as utterly boring as Jailbait.

Top Critic

The cruelty of the law has been better demonstrated with news stories, and unless you're a Californian with two strikes against you, I don't know why you'd want to do this movie to yourself.

Audience Reviews for Jailbait

Haunting performances, however the blocking was made horribly static by the claustrophobic set that crippled the actors' abilities.

Not what I expected at all. The connection between both actors was brilliant, and despite the lack of scenery, the story moves along very well and is extremely moving.

Stephen Adly Guirgis is pretty good in this film, but Michael Pitt is outstanding. His performance is unnerving in its realism and contains a rare amount of blatant honesty - one of the most transfixing pieces of acting from the year 2004. The script, although interesting in a strange way, is peppered with its share of flaws. The character dynamics are unique but they are also muddled at times. Overall I enjoyed the film, mostly for Michael Pitt's excellent work.
