Critic Reviews for Mister John

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

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

Top Critic

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.

Observer (UK)

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

London Evening Standard

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

Daily Express (UK)

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.
