Critics Consensus

Boulevard features a richly layered performance from Robin Williams, but that may be this dour drama's sole distinctive feature.

There's no emotional eloquence.

Boulevard itself moves toward an obvious conclusion with no surprises along the way; it runs out of steam after about an hour.

While it's all too clear that Nolan is unhappy - he also has an ailing dad to care for - the thoughts inside his head remain stubbornly opaque.

This is certainly a believable story, but it's one we've seen before, and neither screenwriter Douglas Soesbe nor director Dito Montiel has found a way to elevate it into something that challenges or inspires.

Unfortunately, the movie plods; you can always see where it's going or trying to go. It also feels incomplete.

Williams delivers a performance of mannered, sometimes heart-wrenching restraint. But something closer to cautiousness tamps down the film.

Audience Reviews for Boulevard


If you like angst-filled drama, "Boulevard" should be right up your alley. Although it's got nothing in the way of new material, "Boulevard" is amazing for its deep, compelling and nuanced performances by Williams and Baker. Aguire's performance is also notably good, although having less depth. Cinematography was strong throughout -- but damn! Did I mention how good Robin Williams was?

As Robin Williams last film this gives us a glimpse of why he was so loved. It is a fantastic performance with an intriguing story that is shot in a unique way with an engaging outcome.
