Critic Reviews for Gabriel

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (21) | Rotten (4)

  • "Gabriel" exhibits a welcome understanding of the broken, and the ripple effect of their pain.

  • Gabriel is a showcase for Culkin, but it doesn't lose sight of the experiences of the characters' loved ones and the bone-deep exhaustion that comes with caring about him.

  • "Gabriel" never entirely compliments its eponymous subject with a story that can match his erratic mentality, but Howe's restrained approach is refreshingly unsentimental, never once creating the possibility of an easy resolution to the situation.

  • Is "Gabriel" trying to say anything about mental illness, or society's attitude toward it? I don't think so, and that's probably for the best, because it's a big part of what makes the movie so refreshing.

    Jun 21, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • This film maintains its anxious themes throughout, which makes for some tedious stretches because the tension never breaks. Despite that, or maybe because of it, "Gabriel" is unexpectedly absorbing.

  • Rory Culkin's turn in the deeply felt and haunting "Gabriel" is so powerful you can't look away.
