"The Living" presents itself as a searing genre piece about domestic violence, but it proves to be only a shell of its potential.

An effective modern day noir.

Apr 13, 2015 | Full Review…

The emotional dynamics in domestic violence, for the abuser and the abused, are often too disturbing and complex to be treated as superficially as "The Living" does.

While the film may end up exactly where you know it should, Wormald keeps it resonant by becoming worse than the men he's seeking to expunge.

The Living could be something kind of interesting, if only it weren't trying so hard to emotionally goad its audience.

Apr 24, 2015 | Rating: 4.1/10 | Full Review…

The Living is one of those unfortunate films ignorant of any world outside its author's head.
