Critic Reviews for Acute Misfortune

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (1)

  • It's an uncompromising and complex film, a sort of horror movie about modern times.

    May 23, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • An artist biopic that swaggeringly busts the limitations of the well-worn subgenre, Acute Misfortune is one of the year's most striking and accomplished directorial debuts.

    August 17, 2018 | Full Review…
  • While Thomas M. Wright's adaptation of Jensen's memoir of the same name attempts to frame this as an encounter from which both gained, it never quite becomes explicable as anything other than a bully-victim relationship.

    August 6, 2018 | Full Review…
  • A beautifully made and intensely thoughtful portrait of the life of controversial Archibald-winning painter Adam Cullen, based on the journalist and Saturday Paper editor Erik Jensen's wild and compelling book of the same name.

    August 4, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • An off-putting-but-fittingly-titled study of a period at the end of the life...

    August 22, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • A selectively appealing movie that muddles its motives instead of taking its chances, redeemed only by two undeniably strong and vivid lead performances.

    August 7, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
