Critic Reviews for The Whore's Son

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (9)

  • It's reasonable, of course, for a teenager to misunderstand his mother. But The Whore's Son doesn't comprehend her any better than her son does.

    June 9, 2006 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Tale of mother worship nicely sets its protags within multiple contexts as outsiders, but is kept from taking off by poor motivations and a nagging naivete in the over-innocent title character.

    June 8, 2006 | Full Review…
  • Despite a contrived creakiness in the plot, a climax all too broadly hinted at in the opening scene and the occasional dive into blowzy-hooker clich, some characters are nicely observed.

    June 8, 2006
  • The slicing camerawork of Fassbinder/Haneke collaborator Jurgen Jurges underscores the bitter message: We don't always know what we want from our parents, only what we're not getting.

    May 2, 2006
  • The story should have been allowed to unfold naturally, from start to finish, without disclosing where it was headed right from the get-go.

    April 28, 2006 | Rating: 2/5
  • ... a low-key Austrian drama that, as the title hints, dusts off Coming of Age Plot No. 16C, with modestly entertaining results.

    April 28, 2006 | Rating: 2/4
