Critic Reviews for Down the Shore

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7)

The director, Harold Guskin, and writer, Sandra Jennings, show admirable patience in letting the story unspool, and the actors reward them.

Top Critic

None of it hangs together - particularly as the film heads into his final third, and you realize director Harold Guskin and screenwriter Sandra Jennings don't have a clue as to how to wrap things up.

Top Critic

Gandolfini and Janssen dance a delicate minuet around one another, pacing out a slow, quiet revelation of the shared past that has paralyzed their wills to happiness and change.

Top Critic

Costa brings a nice, lived-in sexiness to the evocatively shot setting, and Gandolfini settles into his character with extraordinary skill and sensitivity.

Brando-wheezing Gandolfini never slums it, but there's still no shaking the sense that a pro has shown up for amateur hour.

Any moments of honesty are immediately drowned out by a blast of heartfelt tunes that assure you the scene you've been watching was significant.

Audience Reviews for Down the Shore

I'm still waiting for Gandolphini to grab hold of a standout role so he can win an Oscar already. This a solid yet hollow indie with a great cast. Gandolphini is always really good. But the standout is Joe Pope as the tormented Wiley who has the film's darkest and most vulnerable moments. Magaro also deserves some recognition here, who undeniably is channeling Leo DiCaprio in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape".
