Critic Reviews for Happy New Year, Colin Burstead

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (2)

Ben Wheatley strips things way back for his nerve-raddled family reunion comedy, and the result is one of his best, most fluid films.

Plenty of classy ingredients here, but Wheatley's tentative first foray into the realm of adult drama is not the heart-bruising emotional assault course it could have been.

October 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Wheatley's film has an itchy documentary feel [and] the performances have an improvisational rawness... But too many characters get lost in the margins and the drama itself doesn't amount to very much.

January 1, 2019 | Full Review…

...offers an ongoing dialectic on family, power and history that has no real beginning or end - which is to say that this production, though modest, remains highly ambitious, and as timeless as it is also very much of its moment.

A nightmarish vision of familial disharmony...

November 29, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

[Wheatley] succeeds because the characters and the situation are so familiar, and their moral conundrums, insecurities and actions are all relatable.
