the transition from book to film is a very difficult task to accomplish for a director to make. i think goran dukic did an outstanding job of doin this the way the script and the way the movie playsout is very good. the casting is great too patrick fugit, shea whigam,shannyn sossamon and among others did a terrific job. the look of the movie fits the story

Best album to come out in a long time. There is not one song I did not love. A gem!

The New York Times
Has an offbeat, absurdist charm that turns a potentially creepy conceit into an odd, touching adventure. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
For a film about suicides, Wristcutters: A Love Story is strangely life-affirming. This film about slackers stuck in limbo between life and death is upbeat in an offbeat way. Full Review
James Berardinelli
It is neither as clever nor as funny nor as inventive as the daring title might lead one to expect. Full Review
Jan Stuart
Los Angeles Times
It's borderline parody of a kind of fey filmmaking popular at crunchy-granola festivals, but the counterfeit aesthetic is ultimately outshone by the life-affirming message. Full Review
Justin Chang
Though its absurdist inventions occasionally border on twee, this affectionate slow-blooming romance mines an understated vein of comic melancholy that the actors' wistful performances perfectly capture. Full Review
