Critic Reviews for Drunkboat

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (10)

  • "Drunkboat" might have come off via nothing more than acting ability and a good heart, if the dialogue didn't amount mostly to aimless chit-chat.

    July 13, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The burnished smear of Lisa Rinzler's photography is a plus, but "Drunkboat" is ultimately the kind of pet project that never traverses from personal to powerful.

    July 13, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Though studied and grating at times, "Drunkboat" does sustain a distinct, odd tone. Like its characters it's dreamily restless and prey to its own quixotic ideas.

    July 12, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This enigmatic coming-of-age movie often seems destined to sail off the deep end. Yet it rights itself just often enough to keep you watching.

    July 12, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Not even Malkovich could save such a leaky film, one that never stays afloat long enough to maintain an adequate focus on the family issues it raises.

    October 23, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • A passion project ill suited to cinematic adaptation, or at least sludgy, unresolved, mannered and grating in its realized incarnation.

Audience Reviews for Drunkboat

  • Jan 16, 2014
    Unfortunately, spectacular acting by John Malkovich can't save this film from itself and its hackneyed plot; there are some great moments but as a whole, it just didn't hold my interest, and I couldn't invest in the adolescent protagonist or his mother. No stakes - a wasted performance.
