Critic Reviews for Henry Gamble's Birthday Party

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (2)

  • Cone-himself a preacher's son whose features generally explore Christian milieus-doesn't condescend while tracing the moment when faith becomes an obstacle to self-realization.

    December 1, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Cone, the son of a Southern Baptist choir director, has by no means made a faith-based movie, but he's made one that treats faith seriously and without condescension.

    June 3, 2016 | Full Review…
  • "Henry Gamble's Birthday Party" feels sincere but not accomplished, empathetic but not deep.

    January 7, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Cone, who is bighearted toward but not uncritical of his Bible-thumping characters, has a keen sense of seemingly incongruous details ...

    January 5, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The acting is so naturalistic and the various subplots are so well balanced that the confused piety of the characters gradually begins to feel like anyone else's everyday problems.

    October 15, 2015 | Full Review…
  • It's a film that's not without its issues, but it displays a sensitivity that more films (indie and otherwise) should try to emulate.

Audience Reviews for Henry Gamble's Birthday Party

  • Sep 03, 2020
    Even with the minimal plot elements, it still feels like there are too many revelations and resolutions when the film's best elements are the more ambiguous character moments, where past transgressions and secrets are merely hinted at.
