  1. Emilio Ferrari's rating of the film Strangerland

  2. Matt Richards's rating of the film Strangerland

    A terrible, one-note performance from Nicole makes this film just barely watchable. The subject matter is interesting enough and the direction feels full of conviction but the it doesn't hold together at all. 1.5 stars

  3. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Strangerland

    That sex scene is a good example of how sex can work for the narrative.

  4. orangey's rating of the film Strangerland

    muddy combination between themystique of the outback and a rather reactionnary fear of female sexuality, which must be controlled by patriarchal authority

  5. ig_____or's rating of the film Strangerland

    Nicole Kidman takes on very well the role of the damaged/grieving mother, giving life to the most complex character of the film. Also, Joseph Fiennes is kinda hot in this, gotta say it. Overall, and despite the fine acting and some beautiful shots, the story was little flat. The kids were presented as spoiled brats, so I didn't really care for them. Besides: who goes out to middle of the desert like that?

  6. J. O.'s rating of the film Strangerland

    Set itself up to be a very promising exercise in nervous tension, but ultimately fell very short. The atmosphere was maintained, though some of the performances were clunky and uninspired. Points for visual style and taking risks, but in the end it needed a little something more.

  7. dave gunn's rating of the film Strangerland

    This is more a film about public personas, secrets, gossip, and how people respond to grief and regret than it is a straightforward mystery. While it is well executed, some viewers such as myself will be a tad disappointed with a film that opens a lot of compelling doors without ever closing any of them.

  8. oldeuboi's rating of the film Strangerland

    Got potential for a nerve-wrecking experience Alas, it feels spinning around most of the times with so little to tell but talk too long

  9. Gone Daddy Gone's rating of the film Strangerland

    "It's one of those movies where the viewer is left to make up their own ending. You are left with no satisfaction after sitting through slow dragging torture." - pfff...clearly, people n-e-e-d-i-n-g an ending got butthurt. This was solid.

  10. Sơn Phước's rating of the film Strangerland

    Nicole Kidman naked scene is memorable. This movie is underrated!

  11. jxn's rating of the film Strangerland

    far from as terrible as it has been critically received. apart from some weak direction and neglect in the writing there's an amazing psychological mystery here.
