July 10, 2007
slick, funny and unsettling, slipping between psychological thriller, absurdist farce and ghost story into an unnerving dreamscape where psychosis meets metempsychosis.
March 1, 2007
If Lemming doesn't necessarily work on an intellectual level, it sure does emotionally.
November 10, 2006
A cross between a psychological and supernatural thriller, the film is intriguing, baffling and often confusing

If you're content to let dream logic take over, a lot can be gleaned from this odd, darkly funny meditation on life, death, love and revenge.

Holds enough interest throughout to keep you entertained -- unless you're afraid of mice.

... wears out its eerie mood with little to justify dragging it out for more than two hours.

August 4, 2006
Dominik Moll's masterfully cast psychological thriller Lemming crackles with tension; its story keeps going off to unexpected places as we watch breathlessly, unable to look away.

August 4, 2006
This spooky, quasi-sci-fi, psychological thriller is unclear about what's real and what's not -- and not in any interesting way.

August 3, 2006
It's a tale of normality invaded by pathology. But here, the danger seems less plausible, the conflict more contrived.

...an intriguing head game from a talented director who needs to solidify his ideas with a bit more substance before he can become truly great. The cast clicks and collides in all its configurations

July 21, 2006
Even by the strictest standards of odd French psychological drama, the behavior here is particularly opaque.

July 8, 2006
Unlike Hitchcock, whose plots were models of clean lines and logical avenues, Moll is more interested in subverting everything familiar, and in leaving stones unturned.
July 7, 2006
The high quality of [Moll's] actors does not relieve the story from seeming ambitiously fudge-brained.

June 17, 2006
A transparently formal film that plays along the narrative boundary between the psychological and the supernatural.
June 16, 2006
More disturbing than thrilling, Lemming, like Alice, overstays its welcome, but does get around to a finishing kick.

June 7, 2006
The movie, which has the slightly glum perversity of early Chabrol, is a dream of betrayal.

June 3, 2006
The theme is hidden desire, but the trip feels like a stale museum tour of the usual psychodrama tropes -- voyeurism, ghosts, sexual fantasy, dream imagery, murder -- without the goose-bumps-on-your-brain payoff.

The actors are more than equal to their eccentric roles, and the film is well worth seeing as a tantalizingly cerebral and unpredictable thriller.
May 28, 2006
Quietly eerie, hauntingly enigmatic psychological thriller...distinguished by Moll's cool, deliberate, almost antiseptic approach to what's actually rather pulpish material.
