This movie is as bad ass the book. The book is HORRIBLE !!! I can't believe the critics liked it. It shows me what kind of critic reviews they use. This was a bok recomended by Oprah and after reading it I swore never to read a book recomended by her again!. Horrible horrible

The clash over the house quickly escalates into a modern-day tragedy. It is a fascinating film, handsomely adapted from the book and well directed. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
The nearly flawless execution of a deeply flawed premise. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
The movie's intense watchability can be traced directly to superb performances by Jennifer Connelly and Ben Kingsley. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Its step-by-step tragedy is so ruthless in its unfolding, you may find yourself wishing it were less well done, that it left you some room to breathe. But House of Sand and Fog has a story to tell and it means to tell it, no matter what the cost. Full Review
Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle
There's a dignity about it, and it's only later that we come to realize that this dignity is misplaced, born of a fatal reserve and a lack of complete investment. Full Review
