... Proof seems like no more than a fraction of a cinematic experience, a string of emotional calculations that fails to provide a satisfying solution.
August 2, 2007
offers a convincing demonstration of the theorem that good writing and sensitive performances can equal an engaging and nuanced piece of cinema.
November 25, 2006
Madden stages the action with a minimum of imagination and gets a career-worst performance out of Davis in a key role, but the material still sputters to life on the strength of the writing and Paltrow's commitment to the part.
September 27, 2006
As a story about personal and family dysfunction, and about coming to terms with life's uncertainties, Proof isn't bad.

A subtle, slow-burning mystery that does justice to its themes of identity, sanity and sacrifice.

March 17, 2006
An elegant adaptation to the screen, with the play's qualities largely intact and great performances from Paltrow and Hope Davis, as her sister. Jake Gyllenhaal and Anthony Hopkins complete a dream cast.

Proof is something of a puzzle, an all-star drama that has the feel of a Sunday afternoon film. Think curiosity, not must see.

Intense and compelling, Proof is an absorbing film that shows the intricacies of the human mind are as complex as a mathematical equation.

Paltrow stars as a woman who may or may not be around the twist. Having named her real-life child after a piece of fruit, that's what I call inspired casting.

A masterpiece before it reached the screen and maybe the highest praise that can be offered in celebration of this film version is that it remains one.

For patient viewers, it does offer a carefully considered and ultimately inspiring examination of how the need for order and logic is less important than a willingness to embrace chaos.

It's a quiet kind of triumph. I know no one saw it but I hope more people will.

The argument Proof makes in its cool, sophisticated way is that sometimes it is difficult to clarify the line between insane individual and insane genius.

..."tasteful" is probably the operative word for the entire thing. It's hard to fault anybody's work here. If there is a problem, it is an insubstantiality in the source material...
December 6, 2005
Intelligent and well-realized but lacking much of an emotional charge.
Full Review | Original Score: B
November 1, 2005
A decent film that...remains married to its words and bound to its limited sets.

Jake Gyllenhaal brings a certain geeky sweetness and enthusiasm to his role as Hal. There's also genuine chemistry between him and Gwyneth, even if she seems a little too old for him.
