Revitalizing the genre by expanding on a recognizable format to include a new perspective...
December 17, 2020
Julia Hart's I'm Your Woman is a refreshing take on the throwback '70s crime picture, as seen through new perspectives.
December 17, 2020
I'm Your Woman becomes more rewarding the more you sit with it; even its nihilistic first half and occasional half-baked dialogue will likely be easier on the second watch, once you know where it all leads.

With spare and precise dialogue, a labyrinthine story with a few heart-stopping twists and pitch-perfect performances by Brosnahan and the supporting cast, this is one of the best movies of the year.
December 15, 2020
Brosnahan is wonderful and "I'm Your Woman" offers an exacting replication of '70s-era filmmaking while turning a classic story template on its head. Too bad it's still not compelling or dramatic enough to hold your interest consistently.
December 15, 2020
Brosnahan's performance is full of tiny nuance.
December 13, 2020
Reorienting a typically white male genre around themes of feminist awakening and racial tension is an intriguing proposition, so it's frustrating that Brosnahan remains blank and the film's pace plodding.

Rachel Brosnahan gives such a compelling performance that I was never less than mesmerized. I also would be remiss to not mention that this movie is just a treat to look at.

Hart attempts to make you feel every moment, but most of these plotless, meandering moments just seem to feel empty. The magic never clicks, and this rich-looking, Seventies-set thriller ends up feeling more like a drag on an unlit cigarette than a burn.
December 11, 2020
Hart presents a handsomely devised and refreshingly cliché-free narrative which keeps you guessing throughout.

The result is a meditative character portrait interspersed with sudden jolts of high-tension violence (a safe-house triple murder, a nightclub massacre, a lethal car chase). But in the best possible way.

There are no duds here, and the lead performance of Rachel Brosnahan is a knockout... It's a rich character and she takes to the role with everything she possesses.
December 10, 2020
It's insightful and considered enough to act as a powerful rebuke to the male cinematic fantasy, though its flaws are as illuminating as its strengths.
December 10, 2020
It's an action movie where the action is always happening somewhere else.
December 10, 2020
A fresh noir-adjacent thriller that deals with womanhood, motherhood, and race with a gracious sense of honesty.
December 10, 2020
Jean's arc, and the bloodbath that ensues, is the most traditional element in this otherwise bracingly unconventional crime picture.
December 9, 2020
Good intentions are well and fine, but if a movie doesn't have much else to offer, then what's the point? I found myself hurling this question around in my head until my skull broke while watching the new thriller I'm Your Woman.
December 9, 2020
The title sounds exploitative - perhaps even silly - but the tale it spins is one of power and, ultimately, of coming unexpectedly, satisfyingly, into one's own.
December 9, 2020
This stylish, quietly suspenseful crime film offers a rejoinder to the typical macho '70s genre, focusing on the female experience in a compelling, nuanced way.
December 7, 2020
[The] narrative... never comes into focus - though it continues to compellingly bring in elements usually kept at bay in the crime film, like family and race.
