Rain Li's crisp cinematography gives the entwined stories different but complementary visual styles. Paul Zucker's editing supports each genre then poses fresh questions by leaping from one to the other.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
You either swallow it and learn to love it, or you start running.
Some viewers may find fault with the basic idea, but Uncertainty is undeniably fascinating.
| Original Score: 3/4
A tiny little piece of awesomeness.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Through a purely movie-world concept, the film arrives at some surprisingly real, vivid feelings.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
A satisfying romantic drama with two alternate stories and a remarkably fresh and vibrant performance by Lynn Collins.
| Original Score: 3/5
A brilliantly-conceived, well-executed, micro-budgeted, action-packed thriller which gives a whole new meaning to 4th of July fireworks.
A taut, skillful exercise in cinematic clockwork.
A young couple between a rock and a hard place must choose whether to go to a family dinner or run from gangsters, but only the latter choice is intereting.
| Original Score: B-
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lynn Collins are so interesting that it's easy to put up with the decision-making dithering that goes along with the title.
| Original Score: B+
It's a fascinating experiment that also happens to be an interesting and highly watchable movie.
Gordon-Levitt adds another memorable character to his growing gallery of exquisite performances and Collins is a perfect match.
An unapologetically bizarre yet sporadically compelling piece of work...
The gimmicky filming technique backfires.
| Original Score: C+
Unfortunately, the movie lacks narrative balance -- not in terms of screen time but in terms of raw audience interest.
| Original Score: 2/4
Perhaps Uncertainty is a metaphor for the writing process. You start with a blank page then you have to make a decision, any decision, and follow it as far as you can.
| Original Score: 4/10
Uncertainty is a long gimmick stylishly filmed and moderately enjoyable but plagued by tedious stretches and constant reminders of its own artificiality.
The film bets everything on an unconventional structure, but fails to do much with it.
Has an interesting concept along with a terrific cast, stylish cinematography and interesting use of symbolism, but it's often rather bland and too low on imagination, credibility and wit.
| Original Score: 4.5/10
Indie drama asks -- but doesn't answer -- big questions.
| Original Score: 2/5
