The Wolf Hour

Critics Consensus

Naomi Watts gives it her all in The Wolf Hour, but it isn't enough to compensate for a film that spends too much of its runtime in search of a compelling story.

  • Watts is left to do the heavy lifting as she has done so often, bringing her character shimmering into life, as real as if you were there in that sweatbox apartment with her - even this far from Mulholland Drive.

    April 15, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The Wolf Hour begins to feel strangely like an allegory for the paranoid fears of white women in a world of scary Black men.

    December 9, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • Like the sheltered loner at its center, The Wolf Hour feels jailed amongst a string of half-realized ideas, too intimidated to step outside and tackle them head-on.

    December 6, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • This movie is mostly just mood-setting, with much more going on in the background than the foreground.

    December 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [Watts] deserves an A for effort in a vehicle that rates a D for dreary, desolate and depressing. The rest of The Wolf Hour deserves an F for forget it.
