Wicker Park then doubles back on itself, layering flashback upon flashback, but instead of building toward a grand romantic climax, it just gets sillier before exploding into a torrent of unintended laughs.
March 18, 2014
Convoluted though this plot may seem, at least the inventive visuals from Gangster No 1 director Paul McGuigan keep you engrossed.

There are some striking visuals and Hartnett is a magnetic presence.
October 18, 2008
A convoluted structure makes this story hard work, but like the French original, it engages with its dazzling zig zag of time frames and varied perspective.

McGuigan imbues Wicker Park with a disorienting atmosphere and visual style, using available window panes and deep focus techniques like a split-screen effect to show simultaneous actions and emotions upon which the narrative twists and turns.

A nice example of what happens to a Hitchcock shrine when it's filtered through a slick punk sensibility.

That Wicker Park becomes as engrossing as it does is particularly shocking, given the almost interminable opening hour...

I usually prefer a film that stays in a logical sequence but Josh Hartnett is a captivating kind of guy who holds your attention throughout the flashback sequences.

Matthew always seems worth caring about, thanks to the unfailingly nice and sincere vibe Hartnett gives off.

This is a great date movie. Handholding can get quite serious during the film's many intense scenes.
September 7, 2004
They have translated a foreign film to an American friendly version in a way that neither diminishes nor excessively departs from the original.

September 6, 2004
This film is genuinely interested in getting us inside the heads of its three leads (Matthew, Alex, and Lisa). It wants us to understand, although not necessarily sympathize with, all three of them.

September 5, 2004
A powerfully compelling film that gains most of its intrigue via the artifice of purposefully withholding information from the moviegoer.

September 4, 2004
It seems to take a confused eternity to get started, but once director Paul McGuigan's m.o. finally becomes apparent, the thing takes on a dogged kind of interest.
September 4, 2004
Wicker Park is an otherworldly dream, and as it progressed I couldn't help but inch more and more up in my seat to take it all in.

September 4, 2004
Not the customary disposable cinematic fare released on the always-slow Labor Day weekend, but an intriguing, original film of ideas and human feeling.

September 3, 2004
An interesting formal exercise: exceedingly hard to swallow, but quietly engrossing...deserves style points for sticking to an unconventional narrative.

It's a movie consisting of two radically different halves, at least in terms of tone. And while the second half doesn't entirely atone for all the liberties taken in the first, it does a better job than might be expected.
