Suspense is anemic in this dark hospital drama about a resident getting too intensive in his care for an attractive patient.

It's a portrait-as-thriller whose fundamental elements are all fine, but whose protagonist just isn't as grippingly complex as the film needs him to be.

The film is anchored and greatly bolstered by Bloom, who delivers a performance of quietly escalating madness.

The Good Doctor is far more content to creep you out than to offer a critique.

It's a film stronger in the moment than in the rear-view mirror, generating some interesting tension along the way, most of it content to creep into view.

Daly deftly creates a disturbing, Chabrol-like tension that plays on immediate identification with the handsome medico's lonely, shy vulnerability and slow-building horror at the depths to which his self-delusion can sink.

The Good Doctor isn't a ponderous bore because Blake isn't a strictly good or bad character: It sucks because he isn't even a compelling character.
