Haunting, provocative, and a tense, alert experience. Yes, there is the pleasure of piecing bits together, of seeing why crimes are never solved (evidence burned, taken as a keepsake, lied about), of uncovering layers -- which is brilliantly done. But then there is the sadness of all those imperfect but intense relationships -- and the questions they generate, fail to answer, and leave you

Andrew O'Hehir
The universe of The Dead Girl is an almost uniformly dreary one, whose women are all either dowdy or whorish. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
A challenging film populated with characters who are depressed, on antidepressants, or strung out on mood-altering drugs, The Dead Girl is a downer with resonance. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
Darker than the shadow of death. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Stylish, highly accomplished and, thanks to its severely restrained palette, mostly off-putting. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
As with her debut feature, "Blue Car," Moncrieff treats sensational material with a disarming matter-of-factness that ultimately makes a deeper impression. Full Review
