Critic Reviews for Arizona
"Arizona" takes a whack at a couple bigger ideas, like a drunk teen playing mailbox baseball.
A frustrating film because one can see what it could have been if a filmmaker had known how to guide it with some daring choices or confident direction.
Arizona is a special kind of crazy, but it's also grounded in its own way. Due to some shockingly violent developments at the beginning, the stakes feel real the entire way through, to the point that you'd believe anything could happen next.
Despite its brief runtime, the film runs out of steam well before its climax.
Writer Luke Del Tredici had a golden opportunity here to utilize the housing crisis as a meaningful device, but really squanders some key storytelling potential, ultimately leaving Arizona feeling like a film that's just "okay."
