Critic Reviews for Night Comes On

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

"Night Comes On" is, true to its title, blanketed in a dim, crepuscular state of waiting. Fishback, her film career unfurling clearly before her from scene to scene, blazes a way out of it.

Top Critic

A strikingly tender handling of such a tough albeit totally human tale. The amount of empathy within Night Comes On is a spectacle itself.

Small but satisfying.

January 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Night Comes On is about loss, pain, revenge and what women (Black women in particular) are forced to endure. However, at its core, the film is about sisterhood and all of the joys and aches that come with it.

Night Comes On is one of the most important films that anyone will see this year, telling the story of a complex young woman who seeks meaning in her life.

Night Comes On will stick with you long after turning it off, yearning for more female-driven stories like this one and hoping they become just as poignant as other films to broader audiences.
