A failed thriller, if a thriller it was intended to be. But it is a great success as... a study of female sexual psychology in a world of hypermasculine violence.

Should a movie be penalized for failing to be something it never tried or aspired to be? Perhaps the marketing is to blame, or the hype surrounding Meg Ryan's nudity.

Interesting throughout with an intriguing female slant not seen in most steamy psycho-thrillers.

It's an experiment that's only partially successful. As a character study, In the Cut is sublime; as a murder mystery, however, the film is slightly ridiculous.

A minutely etched study in mood and female psychology.

In the Cut seemed better by its end than it did in its beginning, it seemed creepier the next morning...and its power only increased on a second viewing.

Campion achieves a gloomy, unflinching portrayal of women in modern society with In the Cut.

I found the movie reasonably absorbing from moment to moment.
November 5, 2003
This is a powerful and harsh film in many ways that doesn't cushion any blows - either psychological or physical. A thought provoking, intense and often shocking film.

[T]he character that Meg Ryan is playing so well here is so compelling. I think it's a wonderful performance that the movie is worth seeing for that.

In the Cut is almost always compelling, even when its true-crime plot machinations appear obvious and flawed.

An honest look at sexuality as perceived by women.

Stylish, clever, and full of insight into the darker side of both male and female sexuality...

A major cinematic achievement--simultaneously heartbreaking, frightening, unpredictable, sexy, grim, provocative and eerily plausible.

The stars are excellent, and their offbeat relationship is satisfying, even if the whodunit is not.
