Critic Reviews for Stranger Things
One of the assets of "Stranger Things" is its air of mystery, and the actors give the indelible impression that they have much locked away inside.
A quietly elegant chamber piece that, at 77 minutes, is careful not to wear out its welcome.
This delicate debut feature amasses a wealth of quiet images that speak volumes.
'Stranger Things' ends up being an entertaining and impassioned throwback to the time when friendly aliens were all the craze, but there's a consistent sense that a far more imaginative and daring series hiding behind the monsters.
Audience Reviews for Stranger Things
Saw this at a film festival a couple years ago and recall that it was one of the better longer-running selections. It would probably be fair to call the acting understated, which makes the plot more palatable. That may sound like a backhanded compliment, but since the story wanders into "charming, if unlikely" territory, subtlety works greatly in the films favor. Worth catching if you have the opportunity.
