The film is superbly crafted, with veteran cinematographer Guy Dufaux composing a coherent palette of dark, rich interiors.
June 22, 2013
Not a crackerjack thriller by any means, and I'm not sure it means to be: It's a dark comedy about people who do horrible things.

A sneakily absorbing indie thriller.

Thankfully Tierney saves the film from becoming a prosaic whodunit by casually revealing the murder's identity 40 minutes in, forcing Good Neighbors to succeed as all films should, through character and style.
July 30, 2011
Inspired pitch-black humor and a crackerjack ensemble.

Working from a 1982 novel set in Quebec City, director-writer Jacob Tierney provides enough thrills and surprises, even a little satire, to keep viewers' attention.

July 28, 2011
Swerving from bland to brutal, endearingly coy to shockingly explicit, the Canadian import "Good Neighbors" finds pitch-black comedy among white-bread lives.

An agreeably sick little movie about a serial killer, a bunch of cats and the uneasy tenants of a Montreal apartment complex.
July 28, 2011
Good Neighbors is a darkly comedic thriller with echoes of Shallow Grave and an undercurrent of repressed Canadian rage, and though it comes to an anticlimactic end, it manages a lot with a slow build of unease.

Good Neighbors is a hotbed of twisted ideas with a straightforward yet novel approach to the Gothic horror in the hearts of mistakenly everyday people.

July 26, 2011
Tierney offers what preparations he can for the offbeat darkness to come, but at least one part of the perfect, triple-crossing crime that plays out is so black you may want to wear shades.
July 11, 2011
A solid, respectable genre piece that should play extra well when watched late one night in your own one or two-bedroom high-rise dwelling.
June 25, 2011
'Good Neighbors' borders on a beneficial near amateurishness as it picks up headway to finish with a rare satisfactory twist and undeclared future.
June 13, 2011
An effective noirish drama of three neighbors with hidden, violent flaws
Full Review | Original Score: B
June 8, 2011
It's a skillful enough psychological exercise -- on the usual paltry Canadian budget -- to suggest Tierney is an unsung homegrown talent, more than ready to move up to bigger budgets and bigger toys.

The residents of Jacob Tierney's Good Neighbours are hard to swallow and impossible to like, yet still very amusing to watch.

Good Neighbors ends up being a rather unremarkable dramatic thriller that squanders any potential for greatness it had with a bland and uninspired finale.
