Critic Reviews for Cuckoo

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Creepy claustrophobic for a bit, it dissolves quickly into suspenseless drift - not all of it coherent.

Top Critic

[A] workaday psychological thriller which, although decently crafted, lacks even a scintilla of subtlety or ambition.

Time Out
Top Critic

It's poorly plotted, deeply uninvolving tosh that makes you cringe for Grant and the estimable Tamsin Greig as his colleague and former protégé.

Dec 21, 2010 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

A centrepiece monologue from Grant on CIA experimentation shows some style, but it's too little, too late, and is rendered moot by the underwhelming climax.

Dec 20, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

An unsettling, unconventional and delicately-handled piece quite unlike anything our film industry is pumping out these days.

Dec 17, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

An alarming head-scratcher, but hopefully a blip for this still-promising creative team.
