Full of twists and turns and strange developments, but it's frustrating to try to figure out where it's headed.

Does not provide enough 'clues' to Sophie's emotional background to make us care whether or not she survives the trauma of 7/11.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Best approached and appreciated as a puzzle that can be completed in various ways and a reminder that memory, like images, can be fixed, but not always trusted.

In the gritty psychological thriller November, a gutsy Courteney Cox puts a world of distance between herself and her lightweight 'Friends' image.

November is the real deal, subtle and scary and touching and profound and unforgettable all at once.

Who lives? Who dies? Who cares.

More a psychology experiment than a film.

A detective investigating the shooting comments on some photos that pertain to the case: 'It's a shame. They're almost too arty for their own good.' The same can easily be said about November.

...spends much of its time replaying scenes with different outcomes, never indicating which is reality, a dream, a memory or just plain dress rehearsal.

A profoundly irritating and meaningless experience... can we please stop making this same movie over and over again, already?

It's supposed to look stylish, a film noir... but a psychological thriller cannot live by mood and atmosphere alone.

Excruciatingly, the film disgorges its crime and variations of it again and again. We'd prefer more detective work and less of what plays out as a grisly loop.

Whatever we think one minute is utterly meaningless, without connection, the next.

Director Greg Harrison seems more interested in pretentiously highbrow visual effects than developing a compelling narrative during November, his convoluted, ineffective psychological thriller.

Basically amounts to an intricate but empty cinematic shell-game...less intriguing than irritating.

An ingeniously scripted psychological thriller.

Chicago Sun-Times
August 4, 2005
It's intriguing when a film is about tension, and its method is about tension, and the two seem to be pulling against each other.

Abstract in the extreme but strangely satisfying.
| Original Score: '3/4'
