Ratings & Reviews

  1. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Light of Day

    A dizzying retreat from the amazing & imaginative stylisations of Schrader's previous work. While the performances are great and the film is emotionally engaging, it just feels like a TV movie; the direction is bland & unadventurous, erring on the side of soap-opera. You'd hardly guess this was the work of the same filmmaker that had just directed such visually sophisticated masterpieces as American Gigolo & Mishima.

  2. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film Light of Day

    Though not totally cohesive, what for the casting perhaps (though Gena Rowlands about steals the show), it still makes for a viewable melodrama more convincing than that of more generic directors. That aside, Trent Reznor for the win!

  3. Eleanor Abernathy's rating of the film Light of Day

    i remember watching this movie on tv late at night when i was a kid and thought it totally ruled because joan jett was in it. that's about what i remembered.
