Critic Reviews for I Know You Know

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

Modest in means but rich in warmth, it's an eminently likeable film and all credit to Kerrigan for finding a new way of exploring the age-old story of dads and their boys.

Time Out
Top Critic

Kerrigan never quite gets the tone right and the film suffers from what looks like a lack of finance in certain areas.

London Evening Standard

With a strongly nostalgic tone, Kerrigan gives this subtly understated thriller a provocative emotional kick. Despite a slightly contrived script, solid performances make the film both haunting and thoughtful.

Shadows on the Wall

Justin Kerrigan's first feature since 1999's Human Traffic is based on his own relationship with his father; no wonder it's so harrowing and deeply felt.

Total Film

I'm not even sure it quite survives a calamitous opening half in which the script toils to prop up Charlie's increasingly ornate flights of fancy. But it is certainly ambitious and heartfelt, dappled with moments of ragged glory.

Guardian

Fundamentally harmless, though it rather tramples on its own period authenticity -- why all the Steven Soderbergh-esque funk-scored heist sequences? You may be nonplussed.

Audience Reviews for I Know You Know

A brilliant and interesting film that had me captivated the whole way through. The acting was so realistic and flowed perfectly. At points it was confusing however that helped the story. It was part of it. It was also very sad. Very underrated.
