Critic Reviews for Elephant Song

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

There's an attractive air of menace hanging over the proceedings, but otherwise the movie feels stagey and stilted.

There's no small pleasure in watching Dolan and Greenwood square off against each other ...

Greenwood is convincing as a professional teetering on the edge of desperation, but Dolan's twitchy, mannered turn gives him almost nothing to play against.

Elephant Song is a twisty and unpredictable film that has poignancy and depth thanks to a layered story that's executed brilliantly by the two leads.

We Got This Covered

Binamé's film has many elements of a gripping psychological thriller, and the verbal jousting between Greenwood and Dolan's characters is rather entertaining; but by the time all is revealed, the punch doesn't quite hit its mark.

Audience Reviews for Elephant Song

Xavier Dolan as an actor is just as much commendable as Dolan the director. "Elephant Song" exhibits that. It's also a steady and suspenseful mind game played on the characters in the film and the audience alike. Bruce Greenwood and Catherine Keener were excellent in their roles, adding just as much intrigue to the plot as does Dolan's character and circumstances.
