All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (3)

  • Landau's performance here is a deftly calibrated thing of beauty, and it ranks among his finest work since his Oscar-winning turn as a frail Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton's "Ed Wood."

  • The medical tidbits, however awkwardly presented, are the most distinctive aspects of the script. The flat direction, alas, is not the work of a filmmaker.

    January 11, 2018 | Full Review…
  • A compassionate portrayal of lives stripped down to bare essentials by aging, illness, and loss.

    January 9, 2018 | Full Review…
  • ...an impressive, nuanced drama that tugs at the heartstrings in witty, poignant fashion. Essentially, Abe & Phil's Last Poker Game is a nice farewell for Landau's long and distinguished career

    November 14, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • There's a simplicity to this film that makes it easy to watch, even if it never feels like it breaks the surface.

    April 24, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Abe & Phil's Last Poker Game boasts a trio of fantastic performances, particularly from Sorvino and Landau in one of his finest turns in his final film, and contains just enough laughs and dramatic themes to overcome Weiner's rookie missteps.
