A riveting haunting chronicle of a young mother who's lost her baby (a splendid Radha Mitchell), the film lacks sharp narrative but has emotional immediacy and intensity and displays the voice of a gifted director, Marc Forster, a major talent to watch

Everything Put Together takes a couple of curious turns that you will either applaud or hiss at, depending on the type of film you are looking for.

It may be a decent reflection of the shallowness of our society, and the unwillingness of many to get involved when they're most needed, but it didn't evoke any emotional reaction from me...just the feeling that I'd been robbed of my time.

Moving down the list: Suburban dread? Check. Social statement about medical incompetence? Check. Shot on hand-held digital video? Check.

Everything Put Together spirals off into some weird Twilight Zone where nothing makes any emotional sense.

The subject matter is queasy, but Radha Mitchell ... is pitch perfect as Angie.

A great example with which to counter the prevailing argument that 'indie cinema' is dead.

"Everything Put Together" does put everything back together in the end, and manages to horrify us in the process.

Despite an evocatively dark-toned DV atmosphere, is too responsible to erupt into the kind of operatic maternal horror it keeps threatening the audience with.

[Foster] shoots this rather grim film like a pretentious horror flick.

None of the actors are given a chance to break through the slow-moving, manipulative script.

A deeply unsettling portrait of an awful tragedy and its terrible aftermath.

Spending an hour and a half with a gloomy, static lunatic hardly makes for a scintillating evening out, no matter how pretty she may be.

One of the those low-budget pictures with high impact that seem to pop up out of nowhere to take audiences by surprise.
