Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Canadian director Atom Egoyan delivers a rare misfire with Where the Truth Lies, a shockingly fatuous murder mystery with pseudo-intellectual pretensions. Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
The real reason to see it is its style, which sets an otherwise fairly unremarkable whodunit in a seedy, lite-Lynchian wonderland that's enjoyable to hang out in for a while. Full Review
James Berardinelli
It's compelling in the way many B-movies are - cheap, sleazy, and lacking the depth we have come to associate with this director. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Malevolence is in generous supply throughout the film. Easy enjoyment is not. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Egoyan's sensibility doesn't quite fit the material. His trademark stone-faced austerity never bends to capture the black comedy in the dissonance between his characters' public and private lives. It almost demands a trashier approach. Full Review
