Critic Reviews for Ten Thousand Saints

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (14)

  • Lacks resonance and a steady directorial hand.

    Apr 22, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • For a movie with extremely loud punk-rock music at its core, "Ten Thousand Saints" is a pleasantly low-key experience; it's a small-scale character drama about learning to live with loss.

    Aug 27, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The film shows all the earmarks of a story too heavily compressed; the complications among the entwined families pile up after a while, and the period milieu feels arbitrary.

  • Jude, our narrator, is paper thin. His most memorable qualities are his gangly frame and his bright blue eyes.

    Aug 20, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a sensitive and interesting film.

    Aug 14, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Ten Thousand Saints" pulsates with full-blooded supporting characters who create a tragic-absurd tapestry of decay and rebellion in the Ronald Reagan years, from depressed New England to volatile New York. It's too bad the center cannot hold.
