Critic Reviews for Quality of Life (Against The Wall)

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (5)

  • A very engaging indie drama about graffiti artists in San Francisco.

    July 21, 2006 | Rating: 4/5
  • Although the filmmakers have succeeded in portraying a raw slice of street culture, they have also made something that seems unnecessarily stiff, foisting a structural conceit onto something that by its very nature is free-form and uncontainable.

    May 26, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Pic's cliched underlying story of restless youth plays as too naive for an older audience and too provocative for teens.

  • A minor, modest indie about two young graffiti artists forced to choose between creative marginalization and the seductions of the marketplace.

    April 6, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Morgan, who co-wrote with Burnam, elicits authentic performances from his two lead actors and from Mackenzie Firgens as Curtis' single-mom girlfriend.

    April 5, 2006 | Rating: 3/4
  • As deceptively modest and quietly ambitious as its urban working-class hero.
