Critic Reviews for The Swerve

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (51) | Rotten (1)

  • It's a forceful debut from Kapsalis, but, wow, it is harrowing.

    October 29, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A relentlessly unshakable albeit unpleasant ride, particularly when filmmaker Dean Kapsalis slaloms around audience expectation, something he skillfully accomplishes for the first two-thirds of the picture.

    October 27, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The power of The Swerve is that it doesn't paint a full-blown breakdown - in this case, one that results in an unbearable tragedy - as easily traced back to one moment.

    October 2, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Azura Skye's tremendous performance [is] as unblinkingly honest as anything Gena Rowlands has done.

    September 23, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Skye gives an excellent performance in a role that spends a lot of time with her in contemplation.

    September 4, 2020 | Full Review…
  • ...no less irresistible and poisonous than the nation's prevailing patriarchy, making Holly's violent deviation from her prescribed homemaking path the last tragic swerve of a woman in trouble.
