Critics reviews

The film might ultimately portray self-scrutiny as an all-but-unavoidable trap, but Beckett himself didn’t shy away from assessing the “interesting failure” of his own first—and last—foray into the medium of the movies. A story about death that never really feels suitably terminal (thanks in large part to its somewhat convoluted conceit), Film nonetheless all too quickly became something of an orphan work itself.
