Critic Reviews for Mister John

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (1)

It's ultimately the film's avoidance of mystery that proves so effective and unnerving.

Top Critic

It's an intriguing hybrid of genre piece and interior psychodrama pinned together by ingenious direction and a great central performance by Aidan Gillen.

November 1, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Gillen's performance is central to this discomforting deconstruction of machismo in its portrayal of loss and hopelessness.

August 23, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

That the whole should not quite add up to the sum of its parts is no great tragedy; there is enough magic in these meanderings to carry us over the flaws.

September 29, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Aidan Gillen is so good in this Irish thriller it makes your skin tingle.

September 27, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Gillen conveys the anger and anguish of his character but this is a painfully slow piece that keeps the viewer at arm's length.
