The actor-director-writer [Jim Cummings] manages to make a host emotions radiate from him, making us participants of his pain and tragedy. [Full Review in Spanish]
September 26, 2019
Jim Cummings, who wrote, directed and acted in the film deserves a pat on his back as he manages to channel out a very assured, matured and understated character sketch of a broken man on the verge of mental breakdown.
September 21, 2019
Thunder Road is a raw nerve of a film; empathetic and tender towards people who shouldn't be likeable.
July 25, 2019
Witnessing [Jim's] struggle is difficult but rewarding.
June 23, 2019
Small-town police officer Jim Arnaud powers through a firestorm of flayed emotions while paying tribute to his late mother. Overwhelmed by grief, he is awkward, scatty, tragic and ridiculous.
June 10, 2019
In the spirit of many great comedians, Jim Cummings has a knack for taking lines that shouldn't be funny and transforming them into accidental zingers.
June 7, 2019
melancholy, funny, excruciating and wonderfully affecting
June 5, 2019
Wonderfully offbeat, this is a thrillingly unique exploration of grief and a raw portrayal of despair and the strange forms it can take. A tour-de-force which needs to be seen.
June 3, 2019
Its laboured mix of dark humour and real sadness is likely to prove an uncomfortable watch.
June 2, 2019
Cummings's feature debut doesn't always get the balance right, but when it does it packs a bittersweet punch.
May 31, 2019
It takes a few narrative risks that won't win everyone over, but it allowed itself to be complex and conflicted about itself. That kept you on the edge of your seat.
May 31, 2019
Such an unapologetic crisis of masculinity will strike some as self-indulgent in times such as these. Yet Cummings is so committed to Arnaud's tragicomic trajectory... that you can't take your eyes off him.
May 31, 2019
Thunder Road is a raw and refreshing comedy.
May 31, 2019
It sounds sad, and it is, but it is also extremely funny.
May 31, 2019
From the beginning, Cummings gives his character, and us, a full emotional workout.
May 31, 2019
An intimate and tender portrait of grief, Thunder Road will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the bizarre emotional roller-coaster of losing someone close to them.
May 30, 2019
Cummings' protagonist is an empathetic marvel, a decent guy trying to hold it together as the world kicks him repeatedly in the groin.
