Creepy, turgid and cerebral mind-game serial killer flick.
December 4, 2008
No more interesting than any standard episode of "CSI" or any of the other myriad of cop-centric whodunits polluting our airwaves.
July 10, 2008
O roteiro carregado de clichs desperdia o que at poderia ser uma premissa interessante, ao passo que os esforos estilsticos de Miller soam patticos, como uma imitao barata dos trabalhos de David Fincher.

Anamorph dances around ponderous issues and grotesque scenery but fails to really engage, startle or disturb.
May 10, 2008
A visual treat for Dafoe fans that goes well beyond the conventional horror genre into questions of reality and fantasy and how, or if, we tell the difference.
May 2, 2008
Director H.S. Miller thinks he's made something broodingly visionary when you're more likely to be aesthetically shaken up by one of Mad magazine's Fold-Ins.

Sure, it's better than 88 Minutes [what isn't?] but it's still pretty pointless, with unclear exposition and murky plot developments.
April 27, 2008
Weirdly positioning serial killing as a depraved form of creative expression and the victims as signature works of art, Anamorph has the odd effect of simultaneous repulsion and fascination.
April 21, 2008
A movie about a premise that metamorphoses into twaddle.
April 18, 2008
On a scale of one to Se7en, Miller's doomed rip barely rates.
April 18, 2008
This serial killer movie is nothing but a copycat.
April 18, 2008
The unfortunate fact is that it's more than a little dull when it isn't preposterous.
April 18, 2008
A serial-killer flick told like an art lecture, Anamorph manages to be gruesome yet dull.
April 18, 2008
The long shadow of David Fincher's Seven falls on Anamorph, a moody, ultimately unexciting thriller.
April 18, 2008
An academic thriller likely to engage only avid collectors of serial-killer flicks.
April 18, 2008
The serial killer in Anamorph shows promise, even if some of his best moves are derivative. The same is true of the film's director.
April 18, 2008
Wears its influences...a little too heavily on its sleeve. But it does effectively convey a lingering sense of dread that can't be easily dismissed.
April 18, 2008
The atmosphere created by director H.S. Miller is gothic, tortured, stylized yet tinged with a classicist's sense of composition, symmetry and, yes, perspective.
April 17, 2008
Beyond its cool, reflective surfaces and infinite plays with perspective lies nothing -- character, relationships, motives all seemingly irrelevant.
