TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Exhibition flouts convention with its untrained stars and impressionistic narrative; thankfully, writer-director Joanna Hogg ties it all together into an intimate, beautifully shot drama.

Movie Info

EXHIBITION depicts a married, middle-aged couple (D and H, respectively played by Viv Albertine and Liam Gillick), both artists, who live in a beautiful modernist house in London's Chelsea. Also designed and built by an artist, the house (i.e. the third character in the film's triangle) is at once a labyrinth, a refuge, a prison and a psychological battleground. As D and H slowly arrive at the painful decision to sell the place, they begin a process of saying goodbye to their shared history under the same roof. (C) Kino Lorber

Critic Reviews for Exhibition

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (7)

Hogg maintains a probing detachment and a cold intimacy. As befits the title, she presents her subjects like specimens in an exhibit, with a rigorously structured style that is non-judgmental and unsparing.

If "Exhibition" lacks conventionally developed characters and dialogue, it is visually enthralling.

A film that's all airy, abstract pretentiousness.

Hogg's third feature magnifies the relationship between people and the spaces they live in with a keen eye for the way the two tend to blend together.

The whole thing teeters between very boring and completely fascinating.

Top Critic

Beautifully shot with an acute eye for crisp composition, this intimate mood piece explores the subtle intricacies and low-level power struggles of long-term love in forensic detail.
