Critic Reviews for A Hole in One

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (10)

  • A Hole in One aspires to the Sirkian social satire of Todd Haynes' Far From Heaven, but the result is closer to a Coen brothers film with all the funny parts removed.

  • Things play out differently than expected, though not in any particularly interesting or entertaining way.

    May 10, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • With its heavy symbolism and awkward, lurching pace, A Hole in One leaves viewers with little more than the vague conviction that falling in love is better than an ice pick to the brain.

    May 6, 2005 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Director-writer Richard Ledes shows better command of 1950s period atmosphere than he does of either his subject or his cast.

    May 6, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • In writer-director Richard Ledes dreamy, '50s-era film, the lobotomy is touted as a way of controlling the uncontrollable and pacifying the anxious.

    May 5, 2005 | Rating: 4/4
  • Quirky to the point of irritation.

Audience Reviews for A Hole in One

  • Nov 08, 2006
    [font=Century Gothic]"A Hole in One" takes place in 1953 in the small hamlet of Ice Town where Anna(Michelle Williams) fears she is losing her mind after witnessing the murder of a friend by her mobster boyfriend(Meat Loaf Aday). She feels that a lobotomy will solve her problems, as demonstrated by Dr. Ashton(Bill Raymond) as part of the local Mental Health Week. As shown, the Trans-Orbital Lobotomy is a simple procedure performed with an ice pick...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"A Hole in One" is a victory of design over any kind of coherence. There are at least three or four separate elements to this movie that never come together. The most interesting of which are the mental health issues and lobotomy but that is definitely from a historical perspective. And the movie misses a valuable opportunity to link the infamous procedure to the conformity of the 1950's.[/font]
