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

    September 27, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Lawlor and Molloy's measured, precise style means their film is always watchable, but in some ways this goes over well-worn territory, and the visual poetry is not always matched by convincing drama.

  • You'd do well to seek out this exceptional and haunting British drama which boasts a career-best turn from Aidan Gillen.

    September 26, 2013 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Gillen is perfect at capturing the sense of a man's lost compass and jittery emotional state in a foreign land, even while he's holding it together just enough to fulfil his fraternal duties.

    September 26, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's ultimately the film's avoidance of mystery that proves so effective and unnerving.

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