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

  • 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.

  • 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.
