Critic Reviews for Flesh And Bone

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (4)

the whole movie rests on the interaction of the two characters and the appeal of the stars who embody them

DVDLaser

A downbeat, elegiac mood piece and character study about angry, damaged people whose lives are as desolate as the dusty West Texas landscape they inhabit.

A nice, heavy movie, if a bit depressing.

7M Pictures

Haunting film, with unexpectedly great supporting performances by Caan and Paltrow

June 2, 2005
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

A captivating thriller with three solid performances

The film starts better than you've heard, but soon gets worse than you predicted.

Audience Reviews for Flesh And Bone

Sometimes it's odd/jarring/wistful to see a couple in a movie who have split quite a while ago. Gwyneth Paltrow is in FLESH AND BONE, too. She's good.

67/100. Fine story with very effective casting. Dennis Quaid is terrific and Gwyneth Paltrow does an exceptional job in a supporting role. The two hour plus running time makes it a little slow moving at times, but it is well worth watching. Good score and cinematography.
