[A] multi-perspective telling of an event that, thanks to strong performances filled with emotional intensity, builds to an explosive revelatory conclusion as a slow burn, keeping one on the edge of their seat.

I can only offer light cheer for this movie. It's a chance for these veteran actors to carve out and chow down on something with meat, even if they have to provide all of the bite.

A low-key, low-simmer effort that benefits from a suitably kaleidoscopic narrative and a number of fine performances.

Human Capital is made by its performances, but its performances expose how banal the structure and plot are at base ... There's something missing to elevate it beyond an entertaining, well-directed film about relatively unpleasant rich people.

Edgy quirky and clever, "Human Capital" is a dramatic, twisty, intriguing movie ride.
