All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (5)

  • You can't build a movie around lingering, soulful shots of the No. 1 train zooming up and down the West Side.

    September 25, 2007 | Full Review…
  • An all-too-familiar wallow in urban woe and artfully photographed isolation.

    September 24, 2007 | Rating: 2/5
  • ...overall, his [Alfredo De Villa's] latest flick is dramatically tepid.

    September 21, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Adrift is a small film with great humanity and deserves a broader audience than it's likely to get.

    September 21, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The film's most effective moments are its quietest.

    January 27, 2007
  • A delicate piece with good performances and an intriguing enough setup, the drama ultimately doesn't go anywhere definite or distinctive enough to leave a lasting impression.

Audience Reviews for Adrift in Manhattan

  • Jul 09, 2015
    A melancholy drama, Adrift in Manhattan is a cold and monotonous film. The story follows three New Yorkers, an artist losing his sight, a doctor who's lost her child, and an amateur photographer, who are all dealing with estrangement. Unfortunately the script is rather weak and doesn't focus on any of the characters long enough for the audience to connect with or care about them. And the directing is rather mundane, doing little to enhance the film or draw out its themes. While Adrift in Manhattan explores some interesting ideas, is poorly made and lacks a compelling story.

    2 tales loosly connected, the first of a lonely eye optition, being followed by a guy taking photos, who she takes a liking to, the second a postal worker at a office, told hes going blind, tales are interesting, although not as in depth as id liked, it ends before time also, it be nice tosee another twenty mins or so,

    Very slow and a bit dull, although has it's good points. I liked the photography and special mention has to go to that dodgy mother with the 20 year old son. Ugh!
