Critic Reviews for Standing by Yourself

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

The longer one watches this determinedly ragged portrait of blue-collar teenage desperation ... the more one gets absorbed in the utter unbridled nihilism of its 'characters.'

May 15, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4

Sad to say -- it accurately reflects the rage and alienation that fuels the self-destructiveness of many young people.

May 15, 2002 | Rating: 3/4

Highly irritating at first, Mr. Koury's passive technique eventually begins to yield some interesting results.

May 15, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/5

Chilling in its objective portrait of dreary, lost twenty-first century America.

Shattering, devastating documentary on two maladjusted teens in a downward narcotized spiral. Extraordinary debut from Josh Koury.

December 8, 2002 | Rating: 5/5

This viewer was plain bored by this latest attempt at exposing "youth truth."
