Ratings & Reviews

  1. Loud Rocks's rating of the film In the Bedroom

  2. Ghostman's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    Masterpiece. A brillant drama rich with irony on parenting, family life, and grief. Freud and Jung would smile. Todd Field is phenomenal as a first time director.

  3. Adam Laurence Pitt's rating of the film In the Bedroom

  4. Adam Whybray's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    The best American novel Joyce Carol Oates never wrote. Some of the symbolism is a bit over-determined, but it grasps America tenderly around the neck and the light filters in so strong until it doesn't any more.

  5. raggiodisole's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    The tensions that grow on the wake of disaster are played out well by all involved, this is a strong, likeable, softly-spoken film

  6. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    I have problems with the third act and its change of direction, but perhaps that's a reflection of how intelligently things are set up in the earlier parts. Field is clearly an actor's director and understands the virtue of letting the relationships breathe on the screen, trusting to the subtle interactions and non-verbal exchanges. He's aided by two leading actors who perform with real generosity and depth.

  7. SiIencio's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    Powerful drama veering onto thriller with stellar performances from the lead duo Wilkinson-Spacek. It is a masterclass in observational study & non-verbal language. Minimal gestures, close-ups and pauses that reflect on the wound that does never heal, a sordid pain like an eternal crucifixion. There is taste in the deliverance, subtlety in the language, feelings in those eyes... the pain is shared across the screen.

  8. Christov's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    I was reluctant at first but this movie completely caught me. Deeply touching, heartfelt and very good directing.

  9. magdalenaroson's rating of the film In the Bedroom

  10. m.jempson@btinternet.com's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    Moody, enigmatic if rather inevitable. More ambiguity around the cuckcolded husband might have added a dimension. Sissy Spacek is brilliant as the grieving mother. Never too sure about Tom Wilkinson with an America accent.

  11. Steve G.'s rating of the film In the Bedroom

    An incredible performance from Sissy Spacek is the rock on which In The Bedroom is built. Although occasionally wandering into unnecessary miscarriage of justice melodrama, a deliberately difficult ending rounds off a memorable tale of loss and the impossible attempts to regain what you once had.

  12. alimcintyre's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    Gripping story of murder and revenge which was nominated for five Oscars. Sissy Spacek won a Golden Globe for best actress. Great film.

  13. Mtume Gant's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    Ehh...just didn't work. Sucks cause there are good actors in it. Just a banal script and concept

  14. Superfrog's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    Gets marked down for pretention. The film is a story where grief is not shared with the audience and emotions run shallow. More annoying: the parallels made with lobster fishing.

  15. Nathanielll's rating of the film In the Bedroom

  16. PFL's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    "In the bedroom" is a classy and intelligent film driven by outstanding performances from Sissy Spacek and Tom Wilkinson and lent poise by Thomas Newman's elegant score. Through his attention to detail, director Todd Field brilliantly evokes the atmosphere of the small-town setting. The unimaginative and predictable elements of the plot (which weaken the film's climax) notwithstanding, this is admirable filmmaking.

  17. harringtonellie's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    When reading the blurb and watching the trailer for this film it seemed like it was going to be some sort of super tornado of drama and emotion - it was - but not in the way I was expecting. 'In The Bedroom' subtly embeds the deep and emotional conflict of each character into the audience. (As a footnote, Marisa Tomei is everything I wish I could be.)

  18. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    Sensitive, subtle and violently shocking. Nick Stahl as Frank is so honest and true with his performance. The entire cast has you gripped. This is a stunning film.

  19. Jack Marsden's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    The direction, by and large, goes unnoticed. The viewer is a complete observer in the lives of totally ordinary people to whom something completely devastating happens. You're a fly on the wall. It's perfect for this kind of story with these characters, who, are, like real people, much more interesting and complex than anything most of mainstream hollywood has to offer. 4.5/5

  20. Lorna Singh's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    Another overrated Independent film where the fault lies with the script. There is nothing wrong with a slow paced film but this one had no focus. A shame,because of such a good cast.

  21. ebabehh's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    Suburban darwinism. Remind me again why guns are legal in the United States of America?

  22. Francisco Mouraz's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    It didn't quite make it for me, still don't know why. Tom Wilkinson is awesome nevertheless.

  23. redux's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    Cautionary tale about taking the law into one's hands. Similar to 'Prisoners', and just as good, with Spacek.

  24. Susana Bessa's rating of the film In the Bedroom

    Grief is a human emotion very hard to be dealt with and even harder to be described. And on that account alone, this film is a winner. It is daunting, scary and most definitely affecting and it benefits from powerful performances. But for me, it was the raw hopelessness, the rage transcripted into the scenery we feel we lived in, once the film reaches on to its ending, that made it terrifyingly great!
