Dark, depressing story that's for adults only.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 28, 2008
Consistently unusual, unpredictable and uproarious viewing.

October 18, 2008
Balancing its frequently absurd humour with poignant observations of that time in life when you're not sure exactly what it is you're rebelling against, Igby Goes Down is an offbeat winner.

Deep, dark and hopelessly cynical - the kind of film that kids are too young for and won't understand and parents are too old for and won't understand either.

While J.D. Salinger and his Holden Caulfield positively own the territory of runaway upper class malcontents in New York, this funny and touching film does justice to the genre.

The poignancy of the conclusion leaves you hoping fervently that Igby's best is still to come - and Culkin's, as well.

The nearest thing we've got to a big-screen Catcher in the Rye...with Kieran Culkin giving a very Holden Caufield-esque performance.

It's second-class Salinger, but even at that it's thoughtfully entertaining.

There are some movies that hit you from the first scene and you know it's going to be a trip. Igby Goes Down is one of those movies.

A highly personal look at the effects of living a dysfunctionally privileged lifestyle, and by the end, we only wish we could have spent more time in its world.

The script is witty and touching, and the performances of the leads (and most of the supporting players) carry it off perfectly.

Writer/director Burr Steers displays a pitch-perfect sense of the way Igby is at once repelled by his family and his upbringing and yet an unmistakable product of it.
