Critic Reviews for Things Never Said

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

The result may not be a big movie, but Things Never Said makes a big emotional impact.

October 18, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4

When it comes to writing the poetry that Kalindra recites, Murray knows how to do more with less; he needs to apply that lesson to his filmmaking, too.

September 12, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A powerful statement about the plight of women held back by sexist tyranny.

September 12, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The film's stars ... are hugely charismatic individually and have chemistry with each other. But the soapy melodrama and ferocious, on-the-nose poems threaten to overpower their budding romance.

September 7, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The movie's poems are unambiguous rants, delivered with theatrical ferocity. On-the-nose dialogue propels its lessons in self-respect.

September 5, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Veteran TV writer Charles Murray (Third Watch) shows his small-screen roots by overrelying on tense, weighty exchanges to advance the narrative, but Hampton's steely performance makes them pay off, as the poet learns to wrest truth from pain.
