Critic Reviews for The Son
Fails to provide enough tension to draw us into what, at first, seems a properly chilling crime drama.
If you have to pick between movies about the spiritual passion of tortured carpenters, make this the one.
A substantial story about how one man handles his personal turmoil.
[Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's] most gripping film to date.
A miraculously straightforward drama of deep symbolism and lingering power.
