Critic Reviews for Yesterday Was a Lie

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (1)

  • James Kerwin's conceptually ambitious low-budget debut offers stunning black-and-white HD cinematography, a sultry jazz score and a refreshingly high-minded script, but feels hopelessly amateurish in the acting department.

  • The sci-fi noir is a movie of intelligence, imagination and mostly beautiful execution, which is why Yesterday Was a Lie is not quite a success, but far more than a respectable failure.

    June 23, 2010 | Full Review…
  • It's a mixture of some very clever, but unguided ideas.

    June 23, 2010 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • This film is highly recommended for those who appreciate a good, dark portrayal of the human psyche. Be warned: it won't hold your hand.

    June 23, 2010 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • Yesterday Was a Lie deals with some heady themes, and Brown strikes some nice notes on her character's frustrated journey, but the film is finally too disjointed and incomprehensible to be enjoyed as much else besides an exercise in style.

    December 14, 2009 | Full Review…
  • There is brilliance here that demonstrates the best of what independent filmmakers strive to do.

Audience Reviews for Yesterday Was a Lie

  • Apr 27, 2010
    If you're a total sucker for noir with a sci-fi twist you'll find just enough interesting about this to sit through most of it. Mostly though it's reminiscent of cut-scenes you would find in late 90's PC adventure games; bad acting pasted on gorgeous landscapes. Except the problem here is that you have to sit through an hour and a half of it...all the while having to remind yourself that it's only rated PG and there aren't going to be any lesbian makeout scenes despite the appearance to the contrary, Trench coats and fedoras for everyone! And I mean literally everyone.
