Mr. Nobody

Critics Consensus

Mr. Nobody's narrative tangles may bedevil as much as they entertain, but its big ambitions and absorbing visuals make for an intriguing addition to director Jaco Van Dormael's filmography.

  • Never mind that several characters seem to gain or lose British accents throughout the course of the film. The lack of continuity only enhances the sense of deliciously dizzying disequilibrium.

  • As philosophy, Mr. Nobody seems sillier than it is profound. But in a parallel reality, more movies would have this degree of insane ambition.

  • This big-budget English-language co-production shows that Europeans can compete in the sci-fi realm where high production values are king.

  • With the film's maddening circular structure and often thudding visual expositions, the experience of watching it isn't quite as enjoyable as a description might augur.

  • A film that has a beating heart underneath its messy -- though breathtakingly designed -- exterior.

  • While Mr. Nobody contains some truly moving scenes, it eventually starts to try your concentration when you suspect all the space/time continuum shuffling may never become more than the sum of its parts.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Nobody

  • Mar 25, 2020
    A nice story, perhaps, about the different directions life can take given the choices one makes, but ultimately going nowhere. Jared Leto shines, and many of the cast (particularly Sarah Polley) do as well, but they are failed by a story afraid to make its own choices. afraid to commit to one. Better than a lot, sure, but not that much better.

    Long & bizarre but ultimately entertaining.

    Mr. Nobody is a film I want to uprate since the visuals are lush and wonderful and I tend to enjoy cerebral / trippy movies. But I never got into the story. It felt wandering / meandering and did not feel like it was going anyplace. There is an excellent film in there that is waiting for an editor to bring it into existence.

    Visually superb. This existential drama about the choice we make and the ripples they have in others across time may be confusing at times but its ultimately enjoyable and rewarding once you figure it out.
