Day Night Day Night Reviews

August 10, 2007
Loktev creates a minimalist study of unfathomable faith.

August 10, 2007
Unfortunately this portrait of a young woman on the eve of her first terrorist foray -- a bombing of Times Square -- replaces the knee-jerk patriotic bluster of Hollywood films with its own postmodern cliches.
May 23, 2007
All in all, it's a creepy subject for a movie -- especially when there is no payoff at the end.
May 12, 2007
Efforts to universalize this story by avoiding specifics ends up making Day Night Day Night broad and blank, reducing the lead character to one more generic nutcase for us to fear and pity. And isn't the anonymity of bombers precisely the problem?

Day Night Day Night brings plenty of shakycam immediacy and a cute face to what seems to be zero point of view.

[Director] Loktev provokes in her audience an involuntary shudder, because we realize that whether an act is madness or inspiration really depends on what side you're on.

Inspired by an actual event in her native Russia, current New Yorker Julia Loktev's Day Night Day Night offers a chillingly effective look at the ease with which a suicide bomber could wreak havoc on U.S. soil -- specifically in Times Square.

A stunt masquerading as a statement.

Too much information would only get in the way and lessen this compelling film's evocation of dread.

Day Night Day Night, a movie about a suicide bomber, may be serious, and it is certainly sure of itself. But it is also maddeningly, purposefully evasive.

May 8, 2007
Terror is existential in this highly intelligent, somewhat sadistic, totally fascinating movie.
May 7, 2007
I'm frankly flummoxed about what Day Night Day Night adds up to, but its 'You Are There' allure is potent.
April 26, 2007
This is a movie that's better left unexplained, since part of what is so breathtaking is Loktev's strength as a storyteller and Williams's expressiveness as an actor.

October 30, 2006
Overly reliant on a weak lead performance, it drags so much that you're left almost wanting the bomb to go off.
September 13, 2006
You spend the film wondering and speculating, looking for clues, and watching carefully.
May 30, 2006
By turns frustrating and impressive in its austerity.
