    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    If In the Cut falls short of the masterpiece Campion intended, it's unquestionably the most ambitious and important film to come along in months. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    An OK mood piece but story-hungry murder mystery that flubs its whodunit fundamentals. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    A remarkably dislikable film, long on atmosphere -- I admired Dion Beebe's brooding cinematography -- and desperately short on vitality. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    As a thriller, In the Cut, with its red herring characters and plot twists, turns dopey and predictable. As a portrait of a single woman, burned by love and wary of what's in store, Campion's movie has its trenchant, telling passages. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    The movie has a nasty, creepy edge that never lets up, and the characters are deliberately grating and alienating. This is a thriller that, like some classic noirs, glories in its own mean aura, its casual profanity and grotesque violence. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Grim and sordid though it often is, the film has a steady flow of visually absorbing images. It's an art movie for the masses. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Meg Ryan does such an effective job of evoking her sexually hungry lonely girl that it might have been better to just follow that line and not distract her and the audience with the distraction of a crime plot. show more
