Critic Reviews for Mortem

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Most often "Mortem" just lacks bite, and the dedicated leads seem at times a little slight for the staging of a struggle at eternity's edge.

[An] excruciatingly bad drama ...

Atlan films it with such black-and-white brio that complaints that none of its depths really to warrant your plumbing seem beside the point.

This initially bewitching throwback to the French New Wave and Cocteau turns into a turgid and frequently laughable pseudo-philosophical locked-room argument between a woman and her soul.

Watching Mortem, I was reminded that the noir genre is a rich depository of minor pleasures.
