The Hungry Ghosts Reviews

I get it, but I don't buy it.

The authenticity of Imperioli's understanding of spiritual revolution makes the screenplay, which unevenly vacillates between displays of schmaltzy sentiment and inept skid row melodrama, almost bearable.

An earnest effort that too often betrays its good intentions with an overly heavy hand.

An ensemble drama that applies the Crash formula to New York and steeps it in Eastern religion, therapeutics and addiction while exhibiting a giggly suburban take on Manhattan kink.

The Hungry Ghosts is vanity cinema at its most tedious.

Thirty-six hours. Multiple characters. Interlocking narratives. Michael Imperioli's Manhattan-set film-directing debut hits plenty of familiar notes, almost all of them off-key.

A choppy bumper-car ride of scenes, full of keyed-in performers, runs of vernacular dialogue, and narrative blindsides.
