Critic Reviews for Mister John

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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