"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.

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.

Audience Reviews for Gabriel

½

Gabriel, the first feature written and directed by Lou Howe, gives Culkin an opportunity to demonstrate serious range, and he takes full advantage; if this film doesn't ignite his career, it'll only be because too few people see it.

Rory Culkin is outstanding in this and he definitely carried this. However there is a severe lack of character development and almost every character except Culkin is infuriating and very one dimensional.
