Critic Reviews for Ultrasonic

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

An electronic score pulses throughout the film, which can be cliched in individual scenes but still goes in some unexpected directions.

The kind of grimly serious low-budget indie that wants to shake up perceptions about our engagement with the world, but mistakes repetition for resonance.

Jun 8, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Undone by tone-deaf repetitiveness and a particularly slack midsection, this debut feature by jack-of-all-trades filmmaker Rohit Colin Rao has some interesting ideas, but is unable to convincingly dramatize them.

While some of the dialogue and acting early on veer toward the stilted, the actors settle into a nice rhythm as the atmosphere turns more mysterious.

"Ultrasonic" recalls better indie films like "Pi" and "Primer," but there's just not enough story to stretch over 90 minutes, resulting in several scenes that feel like filler, propelled by Rao's good but occasionally too-intrusive electronica score.

May 31, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A savvy, artful, well constructed little domestic drama of paranoia that builds its story around its limited production means but never sacrifices its thematic inquiry, its essence, its core.
