The Humbling

Critics Consensus

The Humbling is an inarguable highlight of Al Pacino's late-period filmography, but that's an admittedly low bar that it doesn't always clear by a very wide margin.

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (27) | Fresh (32) | Rotten (29)

  • In the end, 'The Humbling' is one of those movies where the "plot" is far less interesting than what the movie is "about" - and in this case, it's about acting in general and Al Pacino in particular.

    May 30, 2016 | Full Review…
  • This is Pacino's best film performance in years. In playing an actor who has lost the art of fooling himself, he reveals with mordant wit the terrors of diminished capacity. To watch him do it is a master class.

    January 29, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "The Humbling" reveals an ominous gulf between the director and his theme ...

    January 26, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Pacino excels in "The Humbling," a complex drama which seems, almost, tailor-made for the actor.

    January 23, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Pacino gives a refreshingly quiet and understated performance with poignant moments of vulnerability. It is the most consistent factor in a film that is frustratingly inconsistent.

    January 23, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • An unusually charming dark comedy about an actor teetering on the edges of reality, fantasy and career.
