Critic Reviews for The Goob

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (1)

  • Doesn't quite live up to its early promise, but still a solid debut from first-time British writer/director.

    May 29, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The writer-director Guy Myhill brings an engaging mix of abrasiveness and lyricism to a film that seems at times like a British equivalent to David Gordon Green's early films.

    May 28, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The setting for Guy Myhill's terrific coming-of-age drama The Goob is the wind-blasted flatland of rural Norfolk, but there's a reckless, lawless quality to this land and its community that evokes the backwoods of America's deep south.

    May 28, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

    Wendy Ide

    Times (UK)
    Top Critic
  • A really intelligent essay in classic Brit social realism, well-acted and beautifully photographed by cinematographer Simon Tindall.

    May 28, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite the wide-open scenery, the film exerts a forceful, pressure-cooker sense of claustrophobic inevitability.

    May 26, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

    Cath Clarke

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • The Goob is less about linear narrative than presenting a fragmentary drift of events and a spirit of place that's deeply claustrophobic.
