Lost Girls

Critics Consensus

Raw yet rewarding, Lost Girls overcomes uneven storytelling with powerful performances and a willingness to resist easy catharsis.

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (35) | Rotten (13)

  • Garbus brings off something extraordinary in a film that sets out to leave us sad, enraged, and profoundly unsatisfied. Lost Girls makes us want to rethink our need for a certain kind of closure in a world that has so little of it.

    March 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It is a story without a happy ending, or even an ending at all. But Garbus isn't so naive or precious a storyteller to expect reality to afford one - and she should be applauded for not waiting around in vain.

    March 12, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A story that works much better if you do a Google search before watching it, not after, since it offers a lot of convenient human truths, but not enough hard facts.

  • "Lost Girls" hits hard.

    March 12, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's serious, respectful, gravely melancholic. Yet anger best describes the movie's atmosphere, its overall mood and its authorial tone.

    March 11, 2020 | Full Review…
  • All told, "Lost Girls" succeeds in humanizing a grisly news story, but it makes for less than satisfying viewing.

Audience Reviews for Lost Girls

    Netflix should be focusing more on the true crime and indie market as there's quite a gap in the market. Lost Girls brings the true story of a serial killer targeting call girls in a local community. The filmmaker embraces the book that inspired the storyline and manages to grow into a character study without losing sight of the novel. I hope Netflix dial down and create more of these films. There's a lot here to recommend and it allows young actresses to flourish. Better than expected, and the cast manage to engage with the characters. 13/03/2020
