Critic Reviews for Lost Girls

All Critics (50) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (36) | Rotten (14)

  • Low-key and frank about Mari's failings, the movie has no interest in sensationalizing the daughter's life and fate. It is a mystery, but also a rich portrait of life in gloomy, working-class Long Island.

  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Lost Girls

  • Mar 17, 2020
    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
