Critic Reviews for Felicia's Journey
Likeluy divide critics and viewers, this is a simpler and less layered film than other works from Egoyan, who seems unable to infuse the pyschological thriller with his characteristic humor and irony.
Every time we think we know what's going to happen, the story spins off in a curious new direction...
A strange but compelling tale about trust, pain, and the miraculous power of healing.
Audience Reviews for Felicia's Journey
Creepy and fascinating especially the Bob Hoskins character. He is a lonely man who is a professinal cook and a serial killer. There is also the Elaine Cassidy character who found out that she is pregnant and goes to Ireland to find her bf (who left to go find work) since he is the one responsible for getting her pregnant. Hilditch(Hoskins) and Felicia(Cassidy) meet unexpectedly and this is where Atom Egoyan goes into his fav filmmaking trademark. Exploring themes of isolated, alienated charcters dealing with loss, grief, guilt, despair and a non linear story arc. The last scene of the film felt a slight disappointing but I still felt this picture is p work from Atom Egoyan. After Egoyan's "Exotica", and "The Sweet Hereafter", "Felicia's Journey" imo is a near masterpiece.
Ah yes. My good friend Atom Egoyan. He may ignore me in the streets but this was the period of time when he was coming up with some very rewarding films. No comment about the time before or time after. Where is Elaine Cassidy after this? She was great here as was Bob Hoskins playing counter to his usual role.
