  • Mike Nichols' haunting, hypnotic Closer vibrates with eroticism, bruising laughs and dynamite performances from four attractive actors doing decidedly unattractive things. show more

  • Whenever Roberts is onscreen, Closer freezes and starts to atrophy. And when she's off, tender shoots of life begin to sprout. show more

  • Offers a bleak though thought-provoking take on relationships. The challenge for the viewer is in caring enough to become invested in characters who seem hellbent on hurting one another. show more

    I actually loved it...excellent acting with plenty of twists. More true to life in many ways than some people may understand or are willing to admit. In a way, I think it's a great date movie. If she's around for a 2nd date, you may just have something! Not for everyone, especially older folks.
