Critic Reviews for Pelican Blood

All Critics (1)

This sometimes haunting, sometimes lost film about two suicidal people is - like its main characters - pretty to watch but never quite sure where its going. Yet despite the looseness, its an intriguing tale that comes home strongly.

Audience Reviews for Pelican Blood

It looks like wanna be something atypical & peculiar (cinematography, music scores, for example) for another coming-of-age story. However, somehow, the tone sounds so qirky, in addition to the disjointed narrative & irritating, blank protagonist & other side-characters depiction; Harry Treadaway is impressive in delivering his role though.
