Critic Reviews for Nightingale

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (4)

  • In HBO's Nightingale, David Oyelowo gives the best performance of his career as Peter Snowden, a man quickly and violently descending into madness.

    April 12, 2017 | Full Review…
  • It's a film that burrows into an unstable psyche, and nestles there uncomfortably.

    May 28, 2016 | Full Review…
  • An audacious one-man show-a series of deluded, sometimes charming, often tragic, occasionally frightening monologues delivered by a troubled veteran clearly in the midst of a dissociative crisis.

    December 3, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The film is phenomenally acted, but rarely makes much use of the power of cinema, instead using a device associated more with theater-the one-set location, with a one-man cast.

    December 3, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The careful layering of the experiences and emotions that influence Peter's choices, along with expert massaging of the tension that exists from the start, make Nightingale a sad but satisfying film.

    June 4, 2015 | Full Review…
  • "Nightingale" is overshot to appear more cinematic and underwritten to avoid pomposity, and that's okay. Both decisions are just that: choices to serve the character. Peter would be pleased with how his little film turned out.
