Critic Reviews for Whisky

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

A fine film of few words and very little motion.

Boston Globe
Top Critic

A deadpan comedy shot through with a vein of despair, the Uruguayan film Whisky is a pint-size pleasure.

New York Times
Top Critic

With its intentional pacing and spare but precise dialogue, Whisky works up a unique mood that's languorous yet exhilarating.

Slyly appealing.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

directors Stoll and Rebella have taken a potentially farcical triangle and built from it a bleak meditation on twilit lives and lost opportunities.

½

A smart comedy but definitely not your usual, conventional comedy film. The humour is so subtle, and the film is rather slow paced, hence why it won't be for everyone.
