A decent film that falls devastatingly short of anything resembling greatness.

Maybe I would have been more willing to mull over that commentary if any piece of me had actually liked Frank and April Wheeler...

A powerful, wrenching piece of work and an acting showcase for a tremendous ensemble cast.

This is a handsome, intelligent and careful adaptation which may be too bookish... Always fully engrossing, even if it is too coolly detached to ever be involving.

It just touched on so many different issues like love, the sanctity of marriage, forgiveness, rage, entrapment, loneliness and helplessness.

Revolutionary Road's portrait of a disintegrating marriage is so unflinching, so unsentimental, and so bleak, that you really need to be in a buoyant emotional state to get through the movie.

Most of the way, the film feels more like a documentary about the couple than a corrosive study of either of them.

... far beyond deconstructing the man in the gray flannel suit. ... [writer Richard Yates] explored ways we acquire and define our identities from people we love, and how we set our lives on self-deceptive and self-destructive courses.

Mendes has made a troubling film that wrestles with big themes and touchy subjects, even if it is set in an overly familiar milieu.

It's hard to shake the feeling that this is merely a lesser rehash of Mendes' more accomplished film American Beauty.

Similar yet better domestic dramas that come to mind for comparison purposes include "In the Bedroom," "Little Children" and "American Beauty."

Suburban malaise has seldom been better looking or better acted.

[Solid] performances took me over some of the bumps of the movie.

The result of all this combined talent is a masterpiece of a film that reveals the hidden disease at the heart of American life in the 1950s.
February 9, 2009
A road to ruin paved more by mindless conformity than by good intentions.
February 8, 2009
Bolstered by Thomas Newman's score, spot-on set design and the brilliant source material, "Revolutionary Road" is a darkly effective portrait of an Eisenhower-era couple who fall tragically short of reaching Camelot.
February 5, 2009
Sam Mendes's film, based on a faithful screenplay by Justin Haythe, is beautifully crafted.
February 5, 2009
Sam Mendes has created an intelligent, thoroughly engrossing, beautifully acted adaptation of a classic novel that depicts the tragic underside of America's sunniest decade.

(...) Al menos desde Quin le teme a Virginia Woolf?, de Mike Nichols (1966), no se vea en el cine estadounidense el resquebrajamiento de un matrimonio de manera tan cruda y tan honesta.
January 30, 2009
Terrivelmente prejudicado em função da abordagem distanciada e excessivamente racional de Mendes, que parece estar sempre julgando e condenando seus personagens.
