  • The movie's small, but Ashton keeps us watching and listening.

    September 24, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The kind of polished, understated throb in the temple that gives independent, low-budget filmmaking a good reputation. Uncle John is meticulously observed and startlingly good.

    September 24, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The two mostly unrelated stories culminate in a climactic crosscutting of sex and violence that borders on farcical.

  • "Uncle John" is so subtle, so exquisitely paced and so determined not to go in any of the obvious directions that it's hard to believe the film is Steven Piet's first feature.

    September 17, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Thanks to Ashton's brilliant, career-defining performance, we're made to see that the only thing worse than doing evil deeds is being nice enough to feel guilty about them.

    September 15, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Here is a story about secrets and lies. Darkness is hidden under a guise of normality not just from the people in the periphery, but also from the main characters themselves.

Audience Reviews for Uncle John

  • Feb 14, 2016
    John Ashton gives a great performance, a master class presentation of a guy who keeps his emotions in check no matter what, in this quiet little beauty about murder in a small town. Solid filmmaking despite being too long by about a half hour.
