Critic Reviews for Test

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (4)

  • Here is San Francisco as it was in its bohemian twilight, on the eve of catastrophe.

    June 12, 2014 | Full Review…
  • "Test" is woefully inadequate and unnecessary when compared with "Parting Glances" (1986) and "Longtime Companion" (1989).

    June 12, 2014
  • Test is most effective when it prioritizes mood over psychological melodrama (which is often), but Johnson's approach is torn between Albert Camus and Brian De Palma.

  • Six years after his debut feature, The New Twenty, writer-director Chris Mason Johnson returns with a film that's less polished but braver.

    June 10, 2014 | Full Review…
  • If Test can portray a dark time with an underlying sense of hope for the future, it's because almost thirty years later, looking back at 1985, it has no ambivalence about the progress that's occurred since.

  • This is a creative, ambitious project that delivers, thanks in no small part to a director who knows about dance - and to a cast that can both dance and act.

Audience Reviews for Test

  • Oct 18, 2014
    Really well-acted with incredible dance scenes. It tells the story of the AIDS epidemic from a different perspective: that of a real, everyday gay person who isn't already an activist or infected. The fear is real, but it's not all-consuming. Really, a worthwhile film.
