L.A. Weekly
R Xmas offers a poetic and profane ambiguity that's vintage Ferrara. The drug dealers are community leaders, the cops are corrupt, and the materialistic wife has unimagined emotional reserves. Full Review
David Rooney
Despite some hazy plot points, the tough, compelling drama comes together quite satisfyingly, standing alongside 1996's "The Funeral" as perhaps the most controlled and cohesive of Ferrara's uneven work of recent years. Full Review
David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor
The title refers to the commercialization of just about everything in modern society, and Ferrara brings touches of his ornery filmmaking imagination to bear on the pessimistic parable. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Despite the intriguing potential, the end result is a queasy stalemate. Full Review
J. Hoberman
Village Voice
Like any self-respecting Ferrara film, 'R Xmas has its intimations of hellfire, yet it's a weirdly benign Christmas fable -- something like "Miracle on 134th Street." Full Review
