    In The Details' finest moments, writer-director Jacob Aaron Estes exerts a precise control over tone using sound and performance; in its worst moments, the score and actors overcompensate for weak material. Those elements let Estes get away with often-indulgent writing, throwing up whole scenes that don't add texture or conflict. show more

  • The Details has a light tone, but it's anything but light in purpose. It's committed and passionate, one of the most perceptive and morally persuasive movies of 2012. show more

  • Manages to be both compelling and unsatisfying. But what limits it isn't lack of execution. The movie is many things, but a mess isn't one of them. Estes knows exactly what he wants. Whether it's worth wanting is another matter. show more

    As strange as this movie is ~~ my husband and I liked it~~ in a rather weird way it gives validation to \"the golden rule\", while re-enforcing a number of the ten commandments~~ plus it has cursing and sex which most audiences NEED to enjoy a movie :)
