Critic Reviews for Eye of God
Anderson creates what may be the most vividly scary and authentic portrait of a sociopathic ex-con since Dustin Hoffman in Straight Time.
Set against the vivid backdrop of an Oklahoma oil town in the terminal stages of economic devastation, "Eye of God" is deliberately paced but almost entirely free of nonessential material.
A strange, dark movie that ruminates upon several weighty questions about faith and the existence of a Supreme Being ...
A film in which dreams seem to yearn toward a place where they can grow.
Moody, sympathetic and shot through with a sense of apprehension, "Eye of God" marks an impressive debut for writer-director Tim Blake Nelson.
''Eye of God'' is another small coup for Ms. Plimpton, whose uncanny ability to disappear into an assortment of thorny working-class characters comes close to matching Meryl Streep's in chameleonlike perfection.
Audience Reviews for Eye of God
This movie disturbed me but it also had such beautiful performances in it by entire cast. I recommend this to anyone.
(*** 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] Intriguing and well-acted.
A strangely haunting movie. The story is fairly straight-forward, but the way the director presents it, in non-linear fashion and told mostly through flashbacks, is pure genius. It creates a menacing, perhaps even "southern gothic" atmosphere. The director's commentary is excellent, highly recommended if you're a movie buff.
