Critic Reviews for Stand Clear Of The Closing Doors

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (30) | Rotten (4)

  • The director's view of the wider world is flat and schematic; the mother's dealings with an indifferent school district, the ineffectual police, and her aloof ex-husband lack complexity, and the maudlin tone overwhelms any social insight.

  • A copy of it should be stored in a climate controlled vault, for the benefit of future generations who want to know what life in New York looked, sounded and felt like in in the early 21st century.
