Critic Reviews for Luce

All Critics (162) | Top Critics (44) | Fresh (146) | Rotten (16)

  • It's a smart and provocative examination of unconscious bias and race in America.

    November 9, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Adapted by Onah and JC Lee from Lee's play of the same name, it's chilling and provocative, sharply written and sensationally acted by a cast of big-hitters and unknowns.

    November 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Kelvin Harrison jnr, the young star of It Comes by Night, is superb in a shifting, slippery role. ... A performance and a film worth mulling over.

    November 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's Spencer's performance that ends up packing most of the film's heat. Where the other characterisations dither or flip-flop, hers deepens, intensified and shaken by the war of ideas.

    November 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Staginess stalks the enterprise throughout, a prowling figure in an opera cape, and ends by strangling everyone with the cords of loquacity, moralism and story contrivance.

    November 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Based on JC Lee's play, the script can be airless and contrived but you'll certainly be chewing the themes over long after the credits roll.

    November 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
