Critic Reviews for Nothing But the Truth

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (18)

A finely-crafted film of people and ideas, of the sort more common before the movie mainstream became a sausage factory.

Every once in a while, for reasons as random as a Hollywood executive's taste or an economic meltdown, a perfectly decent movie slips through the cracks, never receives a theatrical release and is relegated to the purgatory called straight-to-DVD.

Writer-director Lurie makes dramas that whole-headedly engage ethical quandaries yet dodge easy judgments.

I thought the performances were great, particularly Vera Farmiga.

All this plays out in brisk fashion, and the actors, who also include Alan Alda as Rachel's venerable lawyer, mostly seem to be having a high old time.

A compelling story and strong acting make this a winner. Dillon plays a real son of a bitch.
