Critic Reviews for The Tenants
Alternately tedious and bombastic, the film never achieves a consistent tone, and the characters and situations, while seemingly played on a realistic level, are neither remotely credible nor satisfyingly surreal.
Snoop Dogg and Bernard Malamud don't often pop up in the same sentence, but they make an effective combination in a quiet little indie called The Tenants.
Unremittingly bleak and hopelessly outdated.
The message about race relations in America conveyed by this choppy and psychologically cauterized screen adaptation of Bernard Malamud's 1971 novel is dire.
The stage is set for a full-scale racial conflict, but neither actor is really up to the task.
Audience Reviews for The Tenants
I liked this movie. I dont know why most people dont. I was a more passive movie not filled with 2 much action. But It had a good plot and I and wanted to see the ending which I admit wasnt good.
A powerful rare find. A very intense look at the lives of two struggling writers, one struggling more than the other. Snoop Dogg gave an excellent performance, although the racial issues were a bit melodramatic, however they somewhat added to his character.
