Los Angeles Times
The casting of Taylor gives the film a powerful center, a bright light that keeps it on course. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
A sluggish, tedious film about lost souls living dead-end lives in a dead-end town. Their actions often defy rationality. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
A Slipping-Down Life has a worn, scruffy feeling. It gazes lovingly at vintage clothes and battered old cars as if they were the visible signs of authenticity, wishing that its morose, disconnected inhabitants could somehow be touched with the same elusive quality. Full Review
Joe Leydon
A curiously bland drama that fails to fulfill the promise of its early scenes. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Although mood often substitutes for momentum in Ms. Kalem's film, both of her stars give affecting performances, and there's growth on both sides of the unlikely romance. Full Review
