November 5, 2018
Like a meteor, Complete Unknown shines bright early on but fizzles out when its evolving tone takes one too many left turns.
November 1, 2018
This modestly budgeted indie probably wouldn't work as well as it does if not for its two lead performances from Michael Shannon and Rachel Weisz.

A lot of what makes the film watchable in spite of some truly annoying, highfalutin quirks are the performances from Weisz and Shannon.
September 12, 2017
It is an intimate high-wire act, completely open to interpretation, but with Weisz and Shannon as our guides, Complete Unknown doesn't leave us stranded alone.

[Director Joshua Marston] sets us up for a complex drama, but only delivers a prologue.

Complete Unknown offers a bit of difference to a late summer scene, not a beach film nor a blockbuster.
August 21, 2017
The film (directed by Joshua Marston, creator of the heart-wrenching Maria Full of Grace) is distastefully quirky and takes itself far too seriously, but it's fun to watch because liars are fascinating.
January 1, 2017
This is a story that pretends to have a lot more on its mind than it really does.
October 18, 2016
An irregular film in terms of rhythm and gender balance but is still an excellent work thanks to its main characters. [Full review in Spanish]

Complete Unknown could play out as a gripping mystery or tidy thriller. Instead, the screenplay from Julian Sheppard and director Joshua Marston unfurls as a sedate drawing-room drama.
