  • 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

    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

  • 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 :)
