First Reformed (2018)
Critic Reviews for First Reformed
Quieter and more sensitive than anything else Schrader has directed, with Ethan Hawke giving one of his finest and most moving performances in the lead role.
A film of fascinating conversations, anchored by Hawke's completely genuine performance.
A fascinating meditation on inner turmoil in which doing the right thing can lead down many wrong directions.
The sort of stimulating work that a writer-director of a certain age can deliver when he returns to his creative sweet spot; rejoice, Schrader fans, rejoice.
In "First Reformed," Paul Schrader courts respectability and leaves it in the dust, getting stoned on excess. But make no mistake: He's still one hell of a filmmaker.
