A contemporary gothic fairy tale, slight and scary, Greta is unmistakably a Neil Jordan film, if not quite on the level of The Crying Game and The End of the Affair, or as idiosyncratic as The Butcher Boy and Breakfast on Pluto.

With his keen eye in place and the excellent triumvirate of performances from Huppert, Moretz, and Monroe, it feels good to enjoy a Jordan movie fully again.
March 16, 2019
Greta ultimately marches into an underwhelming third act that's rife with illogical and flat-out ludicrous elements...

[A] tepid, uniquely stupid thriller...Think of a lobotomised Single White Female and you'll know what you're in for.

The appeal of Neil Jordan's latest film lies largely within its self-awareness. Greta takes absolutely preposterous twists and turns, but the film leans into them so gleefully that one can't help but just buckle up and enjoy the raucous ride.
March 12, 2019
A contender for the worst movie of 2019.

Like the Chopin and Liszt performed during the course of Greta, the film is well-played, invigorating, full of sentimental associations and a bit overfamiliar. When the end game arrives, it's a satisfactory homage to a more genteel age of thrills.

Neil Jordan's Greta manages to infuse something fresh and almost comical into the female stalker genre by performing a simple narrative trick.
March 9, 2019
Because Jordan's style brings emotional and psychological depth to every scene, there's a creepy joy in just watching it all unfold - especially because Huppert is so gleefully eerie, and pushes the whole cinematic wheelchair to the edge of the stairs.

As for the prominent leitmotif, Franz Liszt's Liebestraum (Love Dream), it just serves to stir up yearnings for something deeper and artistically satisfying, instead of, alas, leaving us with an illusive dream.

The film is, first and above all, just not much fun at all, and that would appear to be the most important thing for it to have been.

March 8, 2019
A horror movie that grows more bonkers by the minute.
March 8, 2019
Manages to waste both Moretz and Huppert's talents - something I didn't think would be even possible.

March 7, 2019
No one's going to mistake it for high art, but with a game cast and Jordan's slick direction, it makes for a satisfying meal, even if it's mostly empty calories.
March 7, 2019
The film really shines in this buildup, as we see the painful effects stalking can have on a victim.

March 7, 2019
Grim 'Greta' a deliciously dark comic thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.0/40
March 7, 2019
At its best, Greta offers some pulpy B-movie fun delivered by A-list talent...worth seeing for those parts where the freak flag is really flying, but ultimately, it's just another stalker thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
March 7, 2019
It's fun watching French actress Isabelle Huppert go off the deep end in Neil Jordan's dark thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 6, 2019
Greta functions like a dark fairytale, a story the Grimm brothers would've happily collected for their tome.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 6, 2019
Building suspense takes patience that [director Neil] Jordan doesn't display here.
