Critic Reviews for Brakes

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (2)

  • By turns utterly charming and inherently shambolic, this no-budget feature-directing debut from the actress Mercedes Grower is an ambitious trawl through London love lives, with a bonus structural gimmick.

  • Some of it - the mortifying scenes featuring the brilliant Julia Davis, for example, or the hollow sense of loss in Kerry Fox's sequence - is rather wonderful. Other strands seem under-developed ...

  • Charming and could easily have been brilliant, if only it had been more concise.

    November 24, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Full of wry observations on the way Londoners connect (and disconnect), 'Brakes' could be the perfect final date movie.

    November 20, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The film's main strength is its ability to create contained, plausible realities for each of its relationships, even if one or two of them suffer from idiot-hipster gestures

    June 17, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The script is wobbly at times and certain scenarios feel contrived, but Brakes manages to be charming nonetheless.
