Critic Reviews for Nancy
Smith-Cameron and Buscemi are both terrific, Buscemi for the fullness of his subtlety (so much going on in the looks and silences) and Smith-Cameron, for the depths of pain she can suggest, even when she plays a surface happiness.
"Nancy" possesses an alert, tense sense of atmosphere, but it winds up being as glum and inert as the protagonist herself.
Prepare yourself: it's not often that a movie presents us with a central character as unremittingly sad as this.
The movie's narrowly dramatic technique, with its curtly informational scenes, is matched by the emotional overdetermination of the images.
"Nancy" is an eccentric, pungent gift of a film about a woman without identity played by an actress without persona.
