Critic Reviews for The Death and Life of John F. Donovan

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

A work of stunning technique eclipsed by its increasingly jaw-dropping solipsism...

September 13, 2018 | Full Review…

A spectacular mash of half-baked ideas... Well, that, and a movie that just got lost somewhere in the editing room.

Top Critic

[Dolan's] film falls victim to his worst tendencies.

September 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Dolan's English-language debut whinges about personal neuroses rather than probing homophobia or celebrity.

September 11, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

[A] half-baked, cumbersome, overlong psychodrama.

September 11, 2018 | Full Review…

What this needs is cohesion and a greater insight into the actions and outcomes he traces. And, most importantly, it needs far more heart than what is ultimately there. A Dolan film without the heart is about as disappointing as you can get.
