    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    While Scott's movie has a consistent aura, it lacks a consistent tone. What are we to make of the movie, gauzy as a mist-shrouded lake and brutal as "Lord of the Flies?" show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    The movie's realistic portrayal of the ingredients that can lead to bullying and other forms of unkindness inflicted on outsiders by those in power, speaks strongly to viewers watching in the 21st century. show more

    Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    The simmering rivalry between Di and Fiamma, inflamed by the kind of glimpsed indiscretion that makes adolescent melodramas tick, explodes in a thriller ending that turns an observant coming-of-age story into something resembling "The Lord of the Flies." show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    Scott's feature debut is beautifully filmed and offers an unexpectedly shocking ending. show more

    Rex Reed New York Observer

    May not appeal to every taste, but it marks an arresting feature debut for Jordan Scott, a director who is well worth watching. show more

    An auspicious debut for Scott, but one whose ingredients are too familiar to really fizz. Green is great, though, in a dark-tinged role that plays to her strengths. show more

    Mark Keizer Boxoffice Magazine

    Scott excels in maintaining a low, persistent hum of eroticism whose purpose is not titillation or camp. show more

    David Fear Time Out New York

    Cracks simply doesn't make the grade. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    In many ways Cracks is lurid and rickety. But its gripping ensemble performances lend it an emotional intensity that outweighs its shortcomings. show more

    Ella Taylor Village Voice

    Alas, the hopelessly miscast Green is too darn French, lacking the voraciously loony brio it takes to play Miss G. show more
