Critic Reviews for Judy Berlin

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (6)

A humorous, melancholy look at a suburban community in Long Island whose characters include lonely housewives, frustrated teachers, and aspiring actresses, with wonderful performances by Edie Falco, Barbara Barrie and Madeline Kahn in her last role.

July 13, 2006 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Anything that a first-time filmmaker can do to annoy, Mendelsohn does it.

August 27, 2004 | Rating: 1.5/4

Black-and-white movie of crisp contrast and dreamlike content.

June 28, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Judy Berlin isn't just a slice-of-life movie; it's the quintessential slice-of-life movie--a movie whose primary purpose is to capture a moment in time and contectualize it.

September 8, 2002 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The debut feature film of Eric Mendelsohn reveals his fascination with the ordinary rhythms of everyday life on one extraordinary day.

October 13, 2001 | Full Review…

Lacks a punch that Mendelsohn's rough direction and the uneasy black-and-white photography can't provide.
