Entertainment Weekly
Is The Night Listener a wintry drama with a few schlocky jolts, or an underdone psychological thriller straining for some dramatic heft on the side? Hard to tell, but either way, the movie doesn't cohere. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
This unconventional psychological drama weaves a fascinating tale, and Collette and Williams give two of the summer's best performances. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
The film has its creepy, suspenseful moments -- but it shrinks a rich, strange story to the dimensions of an anecdote. Full Review
David Rooney
Aiming for unsettling atmosphere over character definition, the dawdling mystery thriller manages to flatten two protagonists that had far more depth in the novel. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Aiming to blur the distinctions between truth and illusion, it simply blurs its own effectiveness by relying on predictable and not particularly convincing mystery-thriller formula. Full Review
