Critic Reviews for Over the GW

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (4)

  • At a mere 76 minutes, the movie skips past what seems like lots of crucial exposition in favor of vague flashbacks and confusing inserts.

    September 20, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • An undeniably personal if amateurish psychodrama... Gaglia's torture re-creations become rote quickly, and his cross-processed, color-tinted, randomly inserted, over-zoomed Film School 101 indulgences need their meds adjusted.

  • An earnest but amateurish look at a cultlike rehab, Nick Gaglia's semiautobiographical debut feature means well. Then again, so did his parents when they condemned him and his sister to a sadistic substance-abuse program.

  • Over the G W follows a troubled brother and sister as they are committed to a New Jersey treatment center by their well-meaning parents.

    June 27, 2007 | Rating: 4/5
  • Both newcomers, the two leads impress, as does veteran actor Albert Insinnia as the center's psycho director.

  • Over the GW is appropriately troubling in its evocation of humanity's penchant for self-destruction.

  • Overall, the performances are surprisingly convincing, but the mockumentary elements feel out of place and the intrusive switching between B&W and color denotes nothing; it's just a gratuitous flourish that detracts from the raw story material.
