Critic Reviews for Life of Riley

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (7)

  • As in all of Resnais's theatrical adaptations, the performances are warm and naturalistic, countering the artificiality of the stage conventions and illuminating the universal struggle to create personal meaning in lives bound by social convention.

  • I found it unbearably boring and mannered.

    March 6, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • I personally prefer the more vital, cinematic ideas of Resnais in his youth to the stagey confections of his later years. But Life of Riley has its own sadness and charm.

    March 5, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A final opportunity to see a master at work in this mischievously melancholic delight.

    March 5, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Life of Riley is a highly styled exercise from a master filmmaker, a bittersweet addendum to an impressive body of work.

    July 9, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • What initially appears to be a case of art imitating art soon begins to feel like an economic and tawdry imitation.
