Woods' angry energy is clarifying as well as terrifying, and when he unleashes it (usually without warning), the effect is to focus our attention where it belongs, not on a suspense story but on the mysteries of human behavior.

A riveting legal drama.

When I see Woods on the screen in the first shot of a movie I sort of smile to myself because I know that something strange and offbeat and maybe even inspired is about to happen.

Ruben relies too heavily on Woods' whirring turbines to power his scenes.

What counts in Believer is not what happens but how. This is as good a how as any.
