Variety
Top Critic

The movie goes way over the top near the end, but unlike Hollywood films, which would've added violence and a car chase, The Operator's excesses all are in keeping with its theme.

Houston Chronicle
Top Critic

This debut film from local writer-director Jon Dichter has an interesting concept, but its execution feels a bit amateurish, especially in the dialogue.

Except for its excesses and too-easy end, Mr. Dichter's original script takes us into Coen country.

Dallas Morning News
Top Critic

The problem with the central character is that he starts off on such a low note of weak resistance that he doesn't have all that far to fall.

Ends up feeling suffocatingly self-centered.
